~ my son who is not that much a bird fanatic as I am is quite bowled over by the bullfinches and goldfinches ~ you have inspired me to get out into the garden tomorrow~ suitably wrapped up to see what I can do!

Hi Deida, yes, she was up there today, still chucking wood chippings out of the hole/holes :-)

29 Dec, 2009

 

I envy you.. such entertainment.could watch her all day.

29 Dec, 2009

 

That's the problem Deida, its a total distraction, lol, the jobs never get done.

29 Dec, 2009

 

Not a bird I get here, I have seen them nearby but never at the bird feeders. Lovely photo Deida.

29 Dec, 2009

 

Dawn some interesting reading about the Great Spotted Woodpecker

Great Spots have been noted regularly to dig out young tits from their own nests holes or nest boxes,and one pair has known to work systematically through a house-martin colony of 35-40 nests,hammering holes through the mud cups and seizing about 100 eggs and young to feed to their chicks
can't believe it......

29 Dec, 2009

 

Thanks Pottygardener ..he or she was just posing in the tree enjoying the sunshine..I was most greatful to get the bird on camera.

29 Dec, 2009

 

Crikey Deida, I didnt realise the woodpeckers were like that :-( I hope mine arent nasty like that.

29 Dec, 2009

 

No doubt you will keep them in check..Aunty Dawn is about ..lol and good luck

29 Dec, 2009

 

thats awfull deida i didnt realise they were like that either :o(

29 Dec, 2009

 

~ survival of the fittest in the raw~red in tooth and claw!!~ maybe if they are well fed they won't need to do this?~ I can see you out there with the steak and chips Dawn!

29 Dec, 2009

 

Ooo...no...I didn't realise woodpeckers did that either.

Fabulous Deida. I haven't seen one for many years and then it wasn't in my garden. Gone on my favourites.

2 Jan, 2010

 

Brill would love to have something like him in my garden.

2 Jan, 2010

 

That is a gorgeous photo, Deida, what a lovely visitor to have. One called very briefly in my garden about a year ago but I haven't seen him since and I didn't get a very clear photo of him :(

2 Jan, 2010

 

Thanks Toto and Clarice
don't we have some beautiful birds?

2 Jan, 2010

 

I think we do quite well for lovely little birds ....

2 Jan, 2010

 

That was quick Gee..I have only seen him twice in the garden.got realy excited

2 Jan, 2010

 

How is the weather ....snowing like mad

2 Jan, 2010

 

Very frosty start to the day but bright sunshine since about 9am. There are still patches of snow on the garden and I had to replace the ice in the bird bowls with fresh water. More snow is forecast later in the week but often it just seems to miss us.

2 Jan, 2010

 

Gee it usually misses us but not a couple of weeks ago it did'nt, hope we dont get no more fingers crossed :o))

2 Jan, 2010

 

Well captured Deida, love the colours, we usually see them in early Autumn when they strip all the berries off the Rowan.

2 Jan, 2010

 

Thanks PP..well well they like Rowan berries.....did'nt know

2 Jan, 2010

 

Well, if my little rowan tree survives the flood, ice and snow perhaps I will have bull finches in the future :)

2 Jan, 2010

 

plenty of Rowan about..but no Bull Finches

2 Jan, 2010

 

Fantastic pic...:>)

2 Jan, 2010

 

They are also very fond of the flower buds on Cherry trees had a full flock of them last year!

2 Jan, 2010

 

Superb... Have to have that for my favorites.

4 Jan, 2010

 

Lucky you PP...and no pics...?....

Thank you Motinot and Faeriflora
