An unusually colourful animal; it flew off a bit later (it had banged its head on the window).

I believe it's a picture of a snowy owl in a snow drift.

Close, but no banana. I didn't manage to get the image up before some reality-based duty descended upon me.

There were literally hundreds of these birds in the courtyard outside our flat; they have apparently flown in from Russia on their way to warmer climes.

BTW: in English, it is apparently known as a Waxwing (Bombycilla garrulus). Note that it has been gorging itself on Rowan (or Mountain Ash, if you prefer) berries. There is a pile of rowan-berry poo behind/under it.

More birds. The one with its feet in the air is not dead, it flew off afterwards.

Actually they are beautiful birds, and some nice shots.

Great shots. I love birds. We have 5 feeders around the house. I should take some snaps but I spend all my time hacking the software to run the forum. Crying or Very sad

Anyhow, your birds brightened my day.

Nice pictures indeed.

There has been a previous post with pictures of waxwings, those were taken in northern america. Unfortunately the forum's search function won't retrieve it for me ( and I forgot about who and where), but I do remember looking up the bird on that occasion on the web. It's a bird not normally seen here, in the Netherlands, but it seems to show up occasionally (in the northern part of the country) for no apparent reason. But when they show up they seem to be in groups. It's a beautifull bird, judging the pictures, I'd love to spot it once. From what I remember it's more common in Scandinavia.

One of the things I noticed on being in the US for the first time (for em2005) was difference in common birds, like red robbins having twice their 'norma'l size. Sort of seeing Darwin's theory in action. So I was a bit surprised to see the waxwing pictures from europe to look alike the ones tken in the americas.

Howard, doesn't Juli have any pictures from birds around the feeders, she seems to have a good eye for nature.

Juli doesn't take pictures. That's why she married me. Very Happy

Right now we are getting a bunch of birds that we only see for short periods during the spring and fall. Yesterday we saw a Baltimore Oriole. We see one or two a year. No time to get the camera, he was heading south and didn't have time to visit. This isn't my picture.
