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)

The Great Tit (Parus major) didn’t let the wind and rain mess him up, he looks handsome dressed in a yellow vest and a black tie

The small birds in my backyard are always busy playing the “Now you see me, Now you don’t” game, but finally I’ve managed to get a shot of a Great Tit with my SX50.
