critters: egret fishing

New Year's Day visitors of the feathered kind

Sadly, my super macro lens is having technical difficulties, which prevented me from getting good photos of our feathered visitors.  I had to content myself with photographing the birds through the kitchen window and front door window, respectively, zoomed in to the max.

Rougegorge (English Robin) :



Mésange Charbonnière (Great Tit) :


Mésange bleue (Eurasian blue tit) :


Sitelle Torchepot (Eurasian nuthatch or wood nuthatch) :


We usually have skads of tits at this time of the year, but so far they are rare and sparrows are our most common visitors to the birdfeeders. :-/
