A few for WBW

A Grey Heron takes to the air, after being disturbed, and yells his dissatisfaction.





 An Oystercatcher shows his disapproval from the other end.





A Stock Dove, like most of his family relatives, does it silently.





A juvenile Blue Tit, just watches





And a tired Swallow, just rests a while, before continuing his long journey.





Wherever you are, take it easy, and enjoy the birds from around the world, with World Bird Wednesday.

  19. Hello!
    Just found your blog and I think your photos of these birds are amazing.
    Did you take that photo of the robin yourself, with one hand with bird seed and the robin and your other hand with your camera? What a thrill that must have been!

  31. A great series of photos. I especially like the Heron "yelling his dissatisfaction". I remember my surprise when I first realized that such an elegant bird had such a raucous voice.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great photos all. For me, the Oystercatcher at the moment of release would have been a pure lucky shot. Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Wonderful captures Keith!

  34. Gorgeous photo series Keith! The Swallow is beautiful but I think the Oystrcatcher takes the cake (or should I say leaves it).

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    Larry, thanks. The Oystercatcher is a popular one lol

    Springman, thank you :-)

  38. Wonderful per usual!
    I haven't ever seen the unusual looking Oystercatcher before. Only the pearls. Lovely entry. Even the juvenile's have their flair. You continue to be a very talented, patient, photographer. Perhaps, one day I too, will learn.
