Long Tailed Tits

I had a visit a few weeks ago from these delightful little birds. A few minutes in the garden, and then they were gone.

  2. Ptaszki przyfrunęły, zjadły coś pysznego. Później usiadły i rozglądały się, aby zapamiętać miejsce, gdzie wrócą. śliczne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam

  23. Wow... Keith, what a fantastic set of images. I bet you're really pleased with them?

    Great little birds with a character all of their own, and real posers, if they sit still long enough!

    They're all excellent shots , but for me the last one is a real stunner, with that 'look at me I'm beautiful' pose... well captured Keith...[;o)

  26. Lovely shots of a sweet little bird Keith.

  27. They are delightful little birds - always seem so busy.

    Would not mind a few more species of gull down here - we really only have 3 species - the silver (which is beyond common), the Pacific, which is huge and the Kelp gull which is very restricted in its range. An hour working though a gull flock often yields only 2 species - Silver and Pacific. So I do miss the variety.

    Cheers SM - Australia

  28. Thanks Arija. :-)

    Thank you Roy.

    Thanks Stewart.
    3 species of gull? That'd suit me lol
    I have trouble trying to ID the ones we get here; I think 3 I could handle :-)

  29. Such fabulous captures! A treat to see your photos!!

  30. A brilliant series of photos. LTTs aren't exactly known for staying still long enough for decent photos. Haven't seen one in my garden for a couple of years but they stay such a short time I could have missed any visits.

  43. The Long Tailed Tits were adorable! Are those new fledges or do they just always have that scruffy look? We don't have them here, in Maine. Nice post. Love the trotting pheasant and the quote, and the confusus quote. It sums up my whole blog!

  44. Thanks Robin. These birds have a knack of looking dishevelled, yet beautiful, at the same time. lol

  45. These are such adorable little creatures!! The tail reminds me of a scissor-tail...I wonder if they're in the same family. Gorgeous shots.
