Assortment of birds

A few from my recent visit to Wales; but I'll start with some spring Daffodils in the sun, also from Wales.





And now a few birds.





Chaffinch







Blue Tit







Yellowhammer








Goldfinch








Siskin








Brambling





and finally, for now,




Lesser Redpoll

  2. These are absolutely gorgeous, Keith. Your Goldfinch is so much more colorful than ours. I love the yellow and black of ours, but that red mask on yours is so beautiful.

  14. Thanks JoLynne :-)

    Thanks Grace. Nice to see you return. Hope the eye is better. :-)

    Thank you Wanda. Hard to tell the sexes apart with these. I think it depends on how much red is on the face.

    Thank you Joanna. Good to see you again. :-)

    Thank you Larry, glad you enjoyed them.

    Thanks Robin.

    Thank you Bob.
