Springtime in Amsterdam! The sun is shining and the birds are singing. If this Robin’s (Erithacus rubecula) song had lyrics, I bet the chorus would be “It’s Spring! It’s Spring!”
I’m still learning how to use the SX60.. Here are some bird pictures I’ve taken this week-
Since the text in the slideshow doesn’t show very well, I list the birds below as well:
1. European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), 2. Common Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), 3. European Greenfinch (Chloris chloris), 4. Willow Warbler (Phylloscopus trochilus), 5. Common Firecrest (Regulus ignicapilla), 6. Eurasian Treecreeper (Certhia familiaris), 7. Great Spotted Woodpecker (Dendrocopos major)

Note: The European Robin is a small passerine bird of the flycatcher family. It’s not closely related to the American Robin (Turdus migratorius), which is a songbird of the thrush family- see picture on Talains photography blog here.
Today I photographed some tiny passerine birds: A male Whinchat, a male Great Tit and a female European Robin
