what fabulous photos Gee ~ love the long tailed tits, and even though starlings aren't my favourites the photo is brilliant. but its the wagtail with the winged cape i love best!

6 Feb, 2013

 

Loved that , Gee , lots if visitors to your garden , and all very vocal !
Our niger seed feeder has been ignored all winter , the mixed seeds attract the occasional visitor , and the fatballs are untouched . The lad that pruned the tree that they hang on said "there's grass growing out of this one ". On inspection , one of the feeders seeds have started to sprout ........an early harvest !

Great blog Gee, however did you do it????

6 Feb, 2013

 

This is wonderful blog, it made me smile almost in every photo. By the way, what sort of bird is the "newcomer to the area"? How fine it is to be a bird over there, one is like a film star lol. Is the guy on the fifth photo from the bottom a woodpecker?

Great blog and super photo's Gee, great captions - chatty lot your birds!! love the Great Tail Tits especially they are so pretty there are always at least 5 of them when they fly in here, I've never managed to get a picture of them they are so quick! so well done you to have captured so many lovely birds through your window, Milly looks cosy there - pleased your occupied and not walking in the wild woods no doubt :o)

Thanks for all your kind comments. Millie is a fine weather dog, Amy, and hates the rain and wind. She walks behind me like a sulky teenager when its raining!

The bird in the 5th photo is a starling, Katarina, not very exotic but quite amusing to watch a group of them squabbling.

The photos were taken over several days, Waddy, when we had weather of every kind.

Thanks for the pm, Scotcat, I will go and reply now :)

Lovely blog Gee, great pictures and captions. Would love to be able to do that.

7 Feb, 2013

 

Brilliant blog again Gee. Your garden friends are lovely. I don't bame Millie I'm a bit that way inclined myself.

7 Feb, 2013

 

Love this blog, great pictures, loved the captions :)

7 Feb, 2013

 

What fun Gee. My garden is like yours....lots of birds eating the seed but slow on the flower front.

7 Feb, 2013

 

I think Katarina meant the third picture up, not a starling. I wondered what this was as well. Wondered if its a warbler of some sort? The long tailed tits are gorgoeus and so are the goldfinches. Did the forgetful bluetit remember what to do before he crashed?

7 Feb, 2013

 

Hi Steragram, the little bird is a chiffchaff (I had to ask the bird site as I thought it was a wood warbler), and that little bluetit did make it safely across the garden :)

7 Feb, 2013

 

Millie certainly has the right idea, cold wet and windy here also, super blog and very amusing thanks for cheering us all up.

7 Feb, 2013

 

Best blog I've ever seen on GOY so far Gee. A smile on my face from start to end. So clever. I will, with your permission, ask Mr Grumpy Jack to send it to his many internet admirers. That blue tit is bungy jumping, I think I see a fine bit of elastic! Gone into faves right away. Thanks for the Powerpoint info too Gee. Well presented.

8 Feb, 2013

 

I must agree with so many of the compliments here Gee. I want to know how you did the 'speech bubbles' please.

8 Feb, 2013

 

Thanks, DD2, Dorjac and Waddy, so pleased it made you smile. I like the idea of a bungy jumping bluetit, Dorjac and please feel free to use it. I'm very flattered :)

Waddy, I do all my blogs in Powerpoint (if you are not familiar with this, please see blog in Dec which I did when Scotsgran asked about it). The speech bubbles are under the 'insert', then 'shapes' drop down list. Hope this helps.

Great pictures and dialogue, just love your feathered friends;0)

Thanks for the info...I'll give that a try. :)

12 Feb, 2013

 

Wonderful photos Gee! You've some lovely birds visiting your garden, and those Long Tailed Tits...wow......my fave small bird! Good for Millie, dreaming of warm summer days I bet! Loved it....:))

12 Feb, 2013

 

Excellent. Really nice Gee.

Serves to remind me that instead of simply observing the birdies in the garden, I must have the camera nearby.

I do like to see the Long-Tailed Tits, they always arrive as a group, flit about and chatter a lot, then move on.

Our Starlings are few but regular. They always make themselves known.

Nice blog.

Our garden is urban Fractal Cat. I have found a source of dried meal worms at a reasonable price. The pack has a small scoop, so I broadcast them onto the soil in the border once a day. The birds all fly away but the troop of Starlings are usually back before the 7 or 8 Blackbirds who have been chasing each other around the garden for the last few weeks. Birds are so difficult to count. The Blackbirds give way to Starlings. Starlings cooperate but squabble, but Blackbirds just squabble over everything! Starlings are versatile feeders and Blackbirds tied to ground feeding and the tops of pots. I have only been able to study all this due to the cheaper mealworms attracting so many Blackbirds.
