Mum's birds.

Here are the last photos taken up at my Mum's home in The Cotswolds.  Nothing spectacular, but some of her favourite birds that visit her patio to feed.
Robin 'redbreast'. There were two coming to her patio, continuously chasing eachother. Probably males trying to sort out territory.
Long-tailed Tit....completely adorable. This one was on it's own which is unusual for this species.

Great Tit, sometimes the bully of the bird feeder, but such a handsome bird.

This photo below was taken at the front of the house which is north facing. The colours are more muted in this shot, but it shows up the lovely subtle colouring on the back of a Great Tit.

 That's all from Mum's for now.

Hi Roy, that Great Tit was looking up at one of Mum's feeders, preparing to launch off upwards.

Hi Evie, I guess we have colourful Tits and Finches and you have amazing warblers and tanagers and Cardinals, and bluebirds and...and...(-:

Hi Christine, I'm glad you're enjoying our more colourful birds, I wont bore you with our warblers!!!!

Hi Cindy, yes I love going up there as she does get alot more birds in her garden than I'm able to.

Hi Teri, thanks for popping in and taking the time to comment on my blog. I feel the same about birds over there! (-:

Hi Pix, I'm glad you're enjoying our Brit birds so much! (-:

Hi Chris, yes, it's great for birds and other wildlife, she lives in the countryside on the edge of a village.

Hi Julie, it is a beautiful part of Britain up in The Cotswolds (about 1.5 hours north of me).

Lovely series Jen. Thanks for sharing Mum's visitors. FAB.

Mary said...

Your Robins are so pretty! That long tailed tit is so cute it always makes me smile to see a photo of one. The Great Tit photos really show off his color. Looks like he's singing for you!

Jenny said...

Hi Frank, I'm glad you enjoyed my stay up at my Mum's. It's really a great place for wildlife and for me too! (-:

Hi Mary, I think your Robins are pretty too and your warblers are stunning and I like your sparrows alot too!

Warblers might not be quite as bright but they certainly understand the essence of "song".
