WINGED VISITORS

Now that it is Spring and all the flowering trees are in blossom in our village, many birds are visiting. Its fun trying to capture them sitting still. They are so busy drinking the nectar.











He doesn't suck nectar but eats insects and small animals.

  2. How easy it is to miss nature's beautiful birds. Too busy! I'm going to stop, look and listen a bit better from now on.
    I do see some buzzards circling every once in a while.

    "Every bird is beautiful in its own way" Maybe that was a different song.

  5. What great photos. He who doesn't suck nectar does like a nice sausage from a barbeque and will swoop down to grab one.

  6. Beautiful photos Diane. Some of the nectar eating birds that come to my garden are far too fast for me, by the time I grab my camera and try and take a photo they've flown away :)

  18. Wonderful bird shots ... they are busy in our trees at the moment too but my "bird" camera was at the other house.
    I saw a kookaburra sitting on the railing the other morning, beside the fish pond. I am hoping he didn't think it would be a good idea to do a little bit of fishing.
