I know we have a "Bug Photos" topic, but do we have a bird related one? :huh:

 

I managed to snap a couple of photos of our Jay through the kitchen window this morning. They are shy birds, so it's always a little difficult but he seems so keen on these nuts...

Just come across this thread.Some really fantastic pictures here.I particularly like the long tailed tits,Jay and nuthatch ones.I had a bird feeder stand and various feeders to hang on it for Xmas.Its been up over two months but hardly any takers so far.I was told that it will take time for the local birds to find it and feel safe using it but does seem to be taking a long time.

I had the same problem with birds not using the feeder station, just a tip, if you have a hedge/bush move your station nearer to them.  Birds need to feel they have the security of cover before hopping onto feeders.  It worked for me!!

This is a very good tip! My feeders are in the middle of my lawn, and it took several weeks for the birds to get used to using them. However, if the lady next door fills her single feeder that she has hanging in a tree, the birds all leave my feeders and flock to hers until they empty it, when they begrudgingly come back to mine again. They must feel more secure in the shelter of the tree.

What is it?

It’s either a pterodactyl or a black woodpecker...

 

If he’s in the UK, then this is still quite a rare occurrence. Despite living in France, they have very rarely ventured over here. Black woodpeckers, not pterodactyls.

Ah you’re over the pond, with your fancy names! I think the pileated and black are the same genus, and closely related species wise. Our other (UK) woodpeckers fall into a different genus. 

Yes for now.  These Downy Woodpeckers just had lunch

The one on the left is the Dad, he came first then left - The next two images are the Mum feeding the son...downy-1.jpg 

 

This Anna's on the left & Rufous Hummingbirds were at my kitchen window today

And the good lady delivered a set of 4 eggs :)

after a bit of a wait :watch::watch:

I think she'll need to apply for an extension

A bit of a squeeze now and lots of hungry mouths to feed
