It’s a lovely, sunny Spring day here in Amsterdam today. Here are a 3 bird pictures I took this morning-

(1) Great tit (Parus major)

w14-1

(2) Bearded reedling (Panurus biarmicus)

This was a first for me! It’s been on my wish list since I first saw it in a bird book. Unfortunately the photo isn’t very sharp, it’s difficult to get close to these wetland specialists..

(3) Dunnock (Prunella modularis)

Dealing with tree branches is a ‘nice’ challenge for a bird photographer! Here are three photographs of various branches….. and some birds 😉

1. Dunnock (Prunella modularis). Could’ve been a nice photo if he had posed elsewhere-

2. European Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis). A very shy bird, photographed from afar-

3. Long-tailed Bushtit (Aegithalos caudatus). One of my favorite birds but I’ve never managed to get a good, sharp photo of any-

A Dunnock (Prunella modularis) visited my backyard today, I haven’t seen this one before so it was a nice surprise 🙂
