The song thrush are very rare and in the red status now, but we have a few in our garden and this is all we hear day in and day out now from them. We feel blessed.

We get a few game birds in the garden too!

Wood pigeons (not the typical pigeons different species)

Image

Collared doves (they remind me of mourning doves)
Image

We get the usual crow family too like magpies, rooks, ravens, jackdaws as well as the occasional herring gull and black headed gull in from the coast.

And the birds of prey, lol had a lot of sparrowhawks (accipiter nisus) in the yard a lot but the occasional peregrine falcon, kestrel, and buzzard.


We get some of the birds like you do there but different varieties like different types of finches, buntings, warblers etc we do have sparrows and starlings too, same type of crows etc.

I do love the cardinals, blue jays i remember seeing lots of them when i was up a tree stand out side Okolona, MS


I've always loved birds.


These are only the birds in my yard but if there are bird lovers here you can see more here

Very nice pics!!!

the coal tit does resemble a chickadee
also saw other similarities
song thrush looks like brown thrasher
common jay's mannerisms remind me of mockingbird
the one not labeled looks like our cedarwaxwing

PS, we now have lots of collared doves here also, and they aren't counted against our mourning dove limit :P

Your bird images, as everything I have seen of your photography work, are just superb! Very good depth of field, sharpness of detail, and visually interesting composition. Thanks for posting!

I watched what looked like the greenfinch you posted a picture of while hunting in the dead of winter
and during that time, your picture doesn't do that bird justice, he looked magnificent during that time of year
