Today's visitors

I can't tell you how long I have waited over the past few days to try and catch this little fella, pretty much like the adult they are on and off the feeders and don't hang around for very long.

Last year we had approx 5 young Coal tits around the feeders and the garden, this year sadly this is the only one I have seen so far.

Hope you like the shots of him ..

Whilst in wait I couldn't resist photographing the other birds that where around, the following shots are a selection of finches.

1st is a Goldfinch, 2nd Greenfinch and finally a Chaffinch.

I think I will try to get out again so I can post a bit more variety. so I don't get too repetitive.

All photos taken 22/06/2008.

  1. Your Coal Tit looks a lot like our Carolina Chickadee. They are probably of the same family. It sounds like their behavior is the same too.

    I love the pictures of the other finches. Very good.

  2. Of course we like the pictures! How cute he is! It reminds me of our chickadees, like Lisa says. The other 3 are pretty, too. You have such colorful birds right now and I'm having a very dull summer bird-wise. Wonderful photos!

  5. You have a lovely variety of finches in your yard! And the coal Tit remindes me very much of our Black Capped Chickadee. Lovely photos!

  6. The little coal tit is beautiful. Our adults are still flying back and forward feeding nestlings.

  8. Great bird shots! Looks like you are also in photographic heaven of sorts! :)

    I sometimes forget about taking bird images when out in the field but your images might just be the inspiration I need ti focus on that side of wildlife again!

    Great shot!
