My Feathery Friends


I share this blog with my Ispyabird blog.

Although I have been feeding the birds for over 60 years now in a few different Countries it only been the last couple of years that I have photographed them. I take this opportunity to add a few that have visited, many more since I planted flowers . Not all photo perfect and most from behind the kitchen window. Please enjoy…….

I am not a man of many words so please excuse their absence.

Great blog Tommy - I love watching the birds in the garden - it's better than TV. I have to hang everything up though just in case any cats creep in unnoticed.
