Birds are on the move again. Heading back to wherever they winter and feeding up on the way. I came across quite a number of birds at Pickerings Pastures the other day that were busy feeding in the warm morning sunshine. A pair of Blackcaps were good to see. They were gorging themselves on some Elderberries.
Female here with the chestnut cap.
Male with his lovely shiny black cap.
Those shots are wonderful -- that bright bit of color in the background really makes them stand out from "birds in trees." What a terrific eye and camera you have!ReplyDelete
Lovely the see a pair feeding. Stay safe and have a lovely weekend.ReplyDelete
Love the Blackcap! It is a bird I am missing in my photo-collection. :)ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend.
So beautiful Bird photos!!!ReplyDelete
Have a beautiful weekend, Elke
It is great to see both the male and female Blackcap. The Chiffchaff are beautiful birds. Lovely captures! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, enjoy your day, wishing you a happy weekend.
Super shots Adam. I know how Blackcaps can be difficult to see in summer foliage. Doubly difficult to photograph.ReplyDelete
Very agreeable series. It is always very satisfying to be able to observe and then photograph birds going about their daily business. You have bragging rights with these shots.ReplyDelete
The action in your photos is great. I love the little patches of blue. As you say, the birds are on the move again, heading for winter homes.ReplyDelete

You are observant about capturing their images. Good shot !.ReplyDelete

I love the last shot!ReplyDelete
Nature always astounds me as your beautiful images show...how they're protected with colorations to stay almost hidden to predators.ReplyDelete
Thanks for taking time from your day to link in & share with us at IRBB this week!
They are all fueling up for the long haul back to their Winter home. Beautiful pictures, I just love these Adam! Thank you. My birding has been sparse this summer, so I am even more than ever appreciative of opportunities for virtual birds.ReplyDelete
