Chiffchaffs have been in abundance of late. One of the first birds I notice on their return journey here for the summer. It's a welcome sound on a warm spring day. The first one always make me smile with joy and signals to me that the long dark nights of winter are behind us and that the summer is coming. Better than that, all the other migrants are on their way too.
Hello, beautiful bird. Lovely series of photos. Thanks for sharing your post with my critter party. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend.ReplyDelete

Thanks for coming by my blog:) Have to say that the bird capture is not mine, I regularly go into hubby's file to steal from his:) Beautiful moments here and lovely colors!ReplyDelete
Absolutely gorgeous photos. Well done!ReplyDelete
They are beautiful and it's nice to see the buds and new leaves on the trees! Spring is here! Happy weekend!ReplyDelete
Yes, it's great to hear that "chiff-chaff, chiff-chaff" coming from the trees. Not always easy to see or to photograph one though.ReplyDelete
Marvelous, as always. That first image of it in flight is absolutely incredible Adam.ReplyDelete
Once again, thanks for stopping by I'd Rather B Birdin' and linking in with us birders. I appreciate your loyalty and sharing.
I love this litte bird.ReplyDelete
I hear him chirping every day.
True, his singing opens the spring.
Thanks for the wonderful photos
Beautiful action shots!ReplyDelete
I always look forward to the return of robins. They signal spring to me. Love the chiffchaff. So pretty.ReplyDelete
An enchanting little bird to be sure, and as you say, especially welcome as a true harbinger of spring, with only good things to follow.ReplyDelete
