Sunday Selections, brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, is an ongoing theme where participants post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Anyone can join in, just post your photos under the Sunday Selections title, link back to Kim, then add your name to her Linky list at Frogpondsrock.
I have been featuring the birds who visit us for a while now. I think this will probably be my last post exclusively devoted to birds for a while at least. The ones I am featuring today are, while perhaps not as brightly coloured as some of our other birds, still more than welcome. Clicking on any of the photos will make them larger.
We visit the first three birds pictured rather than them visiting us.
Magpies do swoop people in spring it is true. I think they more than make up for it with their enchanting gurgle all year round.
We have a large flock of sparrows who are usually to be seen and/or heard in the garden.
Blackbirds are fairly regular visitors too.
Crested wood doves or Crested wood pidgeons we see every day. They choose to walk across the road rather than fly and when we are putting seed out for the birds they are so reluctant to move it bounces off their backs.
