Merci, Mesdames et Messieurs!



























Willow tit (Poecile montanus) is one of my favourite birds.
They are so cute they might also speak French. ;)

  1. This little willow tit is sooo cute. Loving all the expressions you have captured. It really was play acting to your camera.
    Sadly, no I do not speak French but here goes,
    "Excellent, Bravo, Très bien Sara"
    Have a great day :)

    1. Thank you, Prunella! <3
      I must confess I have changed the order of the photos taken to "create" a gesture of bowing. I don't know what (s)he was really doing, but it did look cute and funny.
      You too, have a lovely day! xx

  5. Kauniita kuvia. Hyvin olet onnistunut saamaan linnun kuvaan. Lintujen kuvaaminen on minun jokatalvinen haaste, mutta aika huonosti olen onnistunut tässä lajissa. - Kiva katsella muiden kuvia.

  6. I feed tits and jay every weekend and love seeing them eating seeds and bread. You're right tits are very cute and clever, they are always near feeder when I put their meal in.

  7. Oui! Miten mua häiritsee niin tuon muuten niin kauniin linnun nimessä "tit", hihii. Sulkut tinttikuvat, muiskuja!

  14. Sykähdyttävän ihania lintukuvia - lintuja kyllä seuraan päivittäin, mutta tuollaisia kuvia en onnistu saamaan! Onnistuneita kuvaushetkiä!

  15. Looks very much like our black capped chickadee although I've never seen one take a bow like this. ;-)

  18. These are great shots. It's almost as if he was showing off for you...a little ooh lala!

  19. I've never seen a Willow Tit before, they're so cute! At first glance, I thought it was a Chickadee like we have here in the California mountains. Your photos are wonderful.

  22. Sweet pictures of this little bird. It looks very similar to our Black-capped Chickadee.

  23. Amazing, sweet friend, absolutely amazing! Like Pamela said, this bird is similar to the Chickadee that we have. When I was a young girl I used to stand outside with birdseed in my hands and the Chickadee's would come sit on my cupped hands and enjoy breakfast :)

    Hugs and joy to you!
