Russian Sage is a bit of a nuisance plant, but it's xeric, easy to care for and here in Utah the bees and Goldfinches always seem to find food. The picture's not great, as the finches are very skittish, but seeing a bush with 30 of tem eating away is always a great sight to see. #gardenbirds #birds #birdphotography
Long tailed tits in my garden today, I love these little birds. #gardenbirds
I think we've been adopted by a pigeon. This poor thing (and for me to say that about a pigeon is a first) hangs about the back door waiting for when I emerge to feed the birds. Spends a lot of time in the garden, in a corner, head collapsed into its body. I'm actually a little worried about them. #garden #birds #GardenBirds #Pigeon
I have compiled a VIDEO (ten minutes) of some of the highlights of the avian visitors to our garden over approximately a 24 hour period covering the 18th and 19 May.
This link will find it for you ...
Pour yourself a cup of tea and relax with our birds - they are all identified for you.
It’s of one of my favourites - the #goldfinch.
Strangely, I walked with my new #camera to where I had previously encountered a nesting pair but they were no where to be seen. Fortunately, on my way back, I heard their recognisable #bird call from another tree. It was here that I was able to get this photo.
It was shot at ISO3200 which is a value I would go nowhere near with my previous bridge camera but I’m extremely impressed with the G9’s performance. The colours are truly striking and I love how the red face of the goldfinch matches closely to the pinecones of the #tree in the background.
It's a foggy and wet morning here which means I'm unable to get out with my #camera.
Instead, I'll share a photo I took earlier in the week on my Panasonic #FZ330.
Fortunately, I’ve had some real luck with #robins the last few weeks, especially in the back garden.
They are very common but I will never get tired of taking photos of them. Such a beautiful little #bird!
Happy Friday all 👋 Actually, I no longer know or care what day it is, retirement means it's day x 🤔

Big beautiful visitor. This gorgeous Missile Thrush has just appeared over the last couple of days and today, for the first time, didn't panic when I set up for the shot. Feeding young I'd guess, hopefully, they'll turn up one day soon.
