wild bird wednesday

The cows haven't been close to the house for a while, but when they showed up a few days ago, so did some of their followers.

Top row: yellowhammers, kingfishers, male chaffinch

A very nice series of photos. I especially like the kingfishers against that very blue sky.

WOW the cows certainly were accompanied by quite a variety of birds. Love the collage.

I always forget about the exotic birds that call NZ home now. I know not every nature-purist would like them, but Yellowhammers and Chaffinches would be a sight to see! Thanks for sharing these great photos!

I've never seen a magpie before, Betty - beautiful birds! I was just visiting your other blog and wasn't at all surprised to read your "jerky kid" article. There is no such thing as accountability anymore. A very slippery slope indeed. But the Truth is still the Truth - ! Have a blessed week!

Thats a nice mixture of the native and the introduced - I'm surprised we don't have some of the finches over here.

Sorry about the much delayed reply - I've been in the UK for a month and I let the blog sit on the back burner - normal service will resume soon!
