FEATHERED FRIEND .... REDWING ON SILVER BIRCH


FEATHERED FRIEND   ....   REDWING ON SILVER BIRCH

Especially in winter, birds like to perch in my neighbour's Silver Birch tree.
From early morning, the branches catch the sunshine.

Lovely to see your birds TT. We have not had many Redwings this winter. They usually arrive in a flock and descend on the yew tree to eat the berries and they do a good job of polishing off late apples. We have had an unusually large number of very large flocks of chaffinches. They come every few days. Whether its the same flock or different ones is hard to tell.

Thanks Holly ... :o)

Thanks Sixpence and Gee.
This is the first Redwing I've ever seen in my garden.
I hope to spot more ...

On a news about wild life they reckon we are going to get more wild life even some exotic kind so you never know Terratoonie you might get more.

Hi Sixpence ..
There are already some types of parrot living wild around London ...
I'll tell Crocus that feral budgies could be on their way to visit ;o)

Lovely Picture, Terra, but I've never seen one of these here in Lincolnshire.

16 Dec, 2012

Thanks Annie ..
I keep looking out for the Redwings ...
hoping they will visit again xxx

18 Dec, 2012

 

I get Fieldfares here most years after my Crab apples, not seen a Redwing before though xx

18 Dec, 2012

 

I was fortunate to spot the Redwing. I had my camera zoomed in on some Starlings and then saw the Redwing nearby .. just pure luck ... Must be nice to see the Fieldfares ... xx

18 Dec, 2012

 

They usually stay for a couple of days, enough time to finish all the apples on the tree and annoy the resident Blackbirds Lol xx

18 Dec, 2012

 

Wow! beautiful!!!

18 Dec, 2012

 

Hello Junna ... thank you ...
I'm hoping more Redwings will visit my garden.

18 Dec, 2012

 

Apples do seem to be their favorite, with us having three trees in the garden and the neighbours a small orchard we are very lucky
