We marvel at the beautiful birds in Peachey's backyard, but I'll bet you have some pretty wonderful birds where you live too! This topic is for pics of those lovely and interesting birds. And even if they're "little brown jobs", as we call the little nondescript brown sparrows in the U.S., we'd like to see them too!

Please post your local bird pics here, where the pics were taken (you don't have to be too specific, if you don't want), and what the bird is, if you know. If you don't know, that's ok too. We'd like to see them anyhow, and someone here will likely figure it out!

I show here birds who live there where I live, or where I have lived earlier (in the mountains)
The photographer and the licence is given under the picture.


This is a blue tit. She comes in winter with pleasure to the feed house.
The birds often become tame.

The blue tit is one of my favorite European birds. So pretty. It's in the same family as our chickadee, but in full color! lol

At the moment it is really very cold.
Not only the songbirds need to food, also the big birds of prey like buzzards and Milane.
I help in the feeding of these big animals
(officially permits, by the way!!!)
I get meat rubbish in a big butcher's shop, and cut this into the right size
Then MeineFreunde take over the feeding of the birds on a big, clear area.
This morning 10 Milane and about 15 common buzzards came for the breakfast.
The animals aren't very nice to each other, but they are hungry.
If they are surely fed in this cold time, they also don't chase after the songbirds.

Hello!
I had a strange situation. I was on the balcony, when suddenly little bird came and he was looking at me for a long time. I didn't move. He flew away and when I go to home, he arrived again and was looking for me lol I found him on Internet. It's Phoenicurus ochruros. We called them "slavey".

OMG :shock: I found this!
