heron

Two pictures of a grey heron (Ardea cinerea), one from the front and one from the side. Doesn’t it look like a completely different bird, depending on what angle you look at it from?

woodpecker

Two pictures of a great spotted woodpecker (Dendrocopos major), taken in the Waterleidingduinen outside Amsterdam this week. You can tell it’s a juvenile because the top of the head is crimson, when it gets older that part will become black and if it’s a male he will get a crimson spot on his nape instead.

pimpelmees

Is it just me or does it look like this little Blue Tit -seen in my backyard yesterday- is channeling Marilyn Monroe in that famous scene above a subway vent.? ;) At least the hair style is ‘normal’ this time (not like the punk rocker Blue Tit..)
