  3. Such a wonderful set of images, Keith. It's hard to pick one over the others, but that last one seemed exceptionally beautiful.

  4. Oh so cute every one of them. Each picture I thought 'that's my favorite' and then I said it again on the next one. Maybe I love the baby English Robin best or the blue tit, but then.... ;>) thanks for all!!!

  15. Hi there - like the LTT at the start. They always did make me smile.

    The old swamp hens are a bit of a bully - but I still dont think I've seen anything as mad as a crazed coot rushing about a lake trying to get one up on all and sundry! Fishing was never dull with those on a lake!

    Cheers SM

  25. so many great shots of great birds. I in partaicular love the longtailed tit and the little Robin. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. They are all so great! Unfortunately, I have some sad news that the young one featured in my post today was found by my hubby earlier on our back patio and had died probably due to starvation.

  27. Crazy good stuff Keith! It's just brilliant how you manage to get such splendidly posed and gorgeously lit photographs of these little guys. The crow shot too, with those light sucking black feather looks great. Awesome, of course!

  28. NatureFootstep, thank you. Glad you enjoyed them.

    Jill, thanks for the update on the little bird. Such a shame when we see that happen.

    Thanks for your comments Springman. Sometimes it all comes together, and other times it doesn't lol

  29. I love all your tiny birds from tits to robins and back again but the last shot of the blue tit fresh from its bath with all the feathers pupped up like a feather boa, is a dear delight.

    ReplyDelete
  30. uhm you sure about Goldfinch? looks more like a greenfinch to me!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thanks Arija :-)

    Pete, you might be right. There are loads of both young, all milling around in this area.
    The chest says Goldfinch to me, but the beak is more like a Greenfinch.

  34. Love the clear focus on your subjects.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wonderful photos, Keith! Although our Robin is a very different bird the juvenile too has spots on the chest. Love the crow. All that detail in the dark feathers!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Thanks Sondra. Those LTT are irresistible. :-)

    Thank you Phyllis :-)

    Indrani, thank you :-)

    Thank you Hilke. These dark birds do present some problems lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. uh let me rephrase that are you REALLY sure :D

    because to me that chest says greenfinch. the goldfinch is much more heavily marked.

    I double taked in surprise when I saw goldfinch!

    love juve robins had one sit on my foot the other day as I was sitting on a bench!

  40. An incredible collection Keith. I don't know how you get such great shots of so many birds that don't generally perch for more than a second, if that! Great post!
