Singing and eating


Here are some frequent visitors at our bird feeder. This winter they look more timid than usually. (?) I manage to take photos of them almost only through a window.


Parus caeruleus






Poecile montanus



Parus major

♥ 


Carduelis chloris


And something bigger...


A Corvus?


Help in identifying is very much appreciated. :)

Thank you, Amy, Eileen and Anni, for hosting!






Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

  6. I love your beautiful images of the blue tit and greenfinch.
    Haven't a clue what the large bird is in the sky but it looks magnificent.
    Daffodils are gorgeous, they herald Spring.
    You must have a lot of patience to capture such shots.
    Have a wonderful weekend Sara :)

  8. You've managed to get some great photos of all the birds, I find that they are too quick for me and have flown off by the time I've got the camera focussed. Have a great weekend. :-)

  10. I'd go with a buzzard of some sort too. We had a pair wheeling over our garden at the weekend and they were magnificent to watch. Yours probably are honey buzzards because they're quite light coloured. More here: https://www.rspb.org.uk/discoverandenjoynature/discoverandlearn/birdguide/name/b/buzzard/

  16. Even though it is behind the window: the pictures of the birds are beautiful!
    I think the big bird is a bird of prey. Someone wrote honey buzzard. The wide outstretched wings of beautifully constructed feathers.
    Have a nice weekend!

    Love, Gerry

  23. The yellow colouring on the birds is so pretty and such a lovely, bright sight in late winter. Beautiful photos, Sara. I have no advice about bird identification - but I see others are helping.

  24. I love birds and I loved seeing your beautiful photos. I wish I could learn how to identify them. Have a great weekend. Hugs, Pat

  25. Some lovely birds seen from your window and a real cheery daffodil at the end!

  26. Hi Sara,

    Your daffodil photo is gorgeous! I LOVE the darling yellow birds you've photographed. I don't believe we have those here in the U.S. We do have goldfinches, which are small yellow and black birds -- very bright and colorful in the spring and summer. :)

    I enjoyed your post. Visiting from Five on Friday -- have a wonderful weekend!

    Hugs,

    Denise at Forest Manor

  31. Beautiful photos, the yellow on the birds and the daffodil creates the scent of spring approaching :)

  32. What sweet and colourful little birds you have there! That first bird is adorable and reminds me of our chickadees, but chubbier and more colourful. I have to take some photos through the windows too for those very timid birds. Have a great weekend!

  33. Suloisia pikkulintuja, olen valitettavasn huono tunnistamaan näitä, tiedän suunnilleen vaan mustarastaan ja tiaiset...ja luulen, että tänään näin ja kuulin kurjen. Sillä niin jännä ääni. Mutta loistavat kuvat olit saanut pikkuisista, taitavat olla kovilla kun talvi vaan jatkuu nyyh. Iloista viikonloppua sinulle toivotellen

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nuo tiaiset ovat sitten ihanan söpöjä! Mukavaa viikonloppua!

  36. Pikkulinnut ja vähän isommatkin aina puhuttelevat.

  37. Beautiful photos! And you're right..it's very hard to identify every one we see. You did great! Hugs, Diane

  38. Hello!:) Wonderful pictures of your garden birds, The Tits and Greenfinches visit my garden also. A very nice flight capture also, and because of the shape and length of the tail, I think it's a Honey Buzzard, but I'm not 100 per cent sure. Love the Narcissus image, so bright and cheerful!:)

  39. Ihania narsesseja. Lintujen laulua on mahtavaa kuunnella ulkona.
