Garden Birds

Today I am sharing some of the birds I see in the garden. The first photo is the female Black Redstart. Phoenicurus ochruros. The following photo is a juvenile Black Redstart.

                                                        The Jay   Garrulus glandarius.






                                                    The Woodpigeon  Columba palumbus

Hello Sonjia,
Beautiful pictures which at the moment I can only dream about. A blue tit showed some interest in a nest box but has not been seen since. 'Junior' the young fox calls every evening for his supper which is about all that happens in my garden. Take care and stay safe.
Mike.

You have told me that your garden surrounds your home. It must keep you very busy maintaing it to such a high standard. I loved the pictures of all those birds but I did not see a magpie. I get one or two visiting my table. They have not only black and white plumage but shiny green,blue and purple feathers too.

Hello,

I'm so surprised that you have so many birds in your area who also live here. The Blue Tit, The Jay, and the Wood Pigeon lives here too. Beautiful photos!
It looks like you have a lot of flowers right now. Please tell me their names :)

I'm now not surprised you have such a variety of garden birds. Your garden is both large and varied in the opportunities it presents to birds. I'm still surprised by how Black Redstart features as here in the UK it is definitely not a bird of gardens. Here in Lancashire it is a coastal migrant, often seen on the rocky shore or edges of golf courses. I hope you have a lovely weekend in that sunny spot.

Hello!!!.. Lovely pictures... What a beautiful garden!!!... Cheers

Sandra said...

super shots of your sweet birds, is that wisteria and azaleas in the last photo? so beautiful, i was born and raised in Savannah Georgia and those are common in that city this time of year. the photo looks like it could have been taken there. hope you are feeling well today... i know the birds love your beautiful lookout area.

Your wonderful, expansive garden yields an equally wonderful variety of birds, Sonjia. I am sure that you are able to spend many happy hours in their company. Black Redstart takes me back to our last trip to Europe, to Slovenia and Croatia precisely, where a pair were resident at the inn we stayed at in Crngrob in Slovenia, and it was generally the first bird I saw when looking out the window each morning. A delightful little bird!

You live in a beautiful environment and garden landscape! Lovely capture on the birds, and no wonder you receive so many varieties of bird. I see mynas, green parrots, and yellow-billed babblers the most around the home, and in summer the Asian koel emerges chirping a pleasant note.

...the Jay, Garrulus glandarius is a beauty and it's nice to see the wisteria and azaleas. We will have to wait to see them.

Rain said...

Oh I love your lookout! What a beautiful spot! The Jay's feather colouring is gorgeous on the wing! Great photos!

Villrose said...

Oh, you are lucky to have the Crested tit in your garden!
Beautiful flowers too.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Your Spring flowering bushes are beautiful! You have such a lovely garden. And the birds! The blue tit is so colorful and I really love the Jay...so different from the ones we have here. But even the gray wood pigeon is beautiful, your picture shows it’s lovely feather patterns...I’m so impressed with all of your lovely portraits.

Beautiful birds, many favourites there.

Teresa said...

Bonitos pájaros, casi todos los veo en mi jardín. Tus flores y el mirador se ven preciosos. Besos.

Irma said...

What a beautiful blog, your lookout post is really beautiful, you will be able to photograph many birds there, I think.
The last two photos are beautiful, everything is already blooming, here it is not nearly as far as it starts to get a little bit with the blossom.
I wish you a nice Easter.
Greetings Irma

Anni said...

Some rather splendid birds there - would not think of the Redstart as a garden bird!

Sorry for rather long silence, things have been a bit crazy here.

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

These beautiful birds love your beautiful garden and so good to have them visit your garden. I too would be taking snapshots of them if I have them in my garden.

We have a ton of finches around us and this year the purple ones have come, beautiful. Looking forward to the hummingbirds. You take great pictures.
