  • Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread

    Robins and tits have been enjoying the birdfeeder today then look who just turned up.

    Barely had the time to take the MC-14 off to get a shot.

    Think he is a bit too big to climb up.




    Then he refused to turn around

      Super photo. Great detail, and lovely colours. I had a female pheasant in the garden last year, drab old thing...

        He's back and this time he has brought the family !

        Really poor light and its not helped by having to shoot through a leaded window.

                  Pheasant Playing Hard to Get

                  We get pheasants in our garden (adjacent to farmland) every morning. There can be as many as 18. Initially, there may be 3 cocks but that reduces to one as the territory is won. The numbers of hens is now reducing as they (presumably) have laid eggs elsewhere.

                  This invasion is mostly restricted to our back garden but last year, and again this year, one female has remained in our front garden for at least the morning. Sometimes she has one, maybe two companion hens but she is usually alone. If I approach her, she will run to me, in the expectation of food. I give them all mixed poultry grain each morning, once more if there is snow or frozen ground.

                  The male has been spending a lot of time displaying to this female and following her around. I has been evident that she is mot interested. Yesterday she finally flew up into our decorative cherry tree, leaving the dejected male on the ground.

                  Pheasants regularly roost in trees at night. Although they will fly up to feeders (for small bids) quite high off the ground, I have never before (two decades) seen one in a tree in the daytime.

                  This is not the best possible shot of a pheasant but it was a one-off and I had to grab the camera with whatever lens was attached.

                    I followed this little Wren for quite a long time, as it moved through the bracken, before it posed in the open. Even with 420mm it is a large crop.

                    E-M1 II, 300mm f4 and MC-14.

                      Very nice image. Unusual to see the tail horizontal.

                        Ron. I'd be proud of that one. Colour all harmonious and shape is great and the bird is in the perfect spot and sized to show the environment. Worth a print to keep.

                          Thanks Peter, although those harmonious colours look more autumnal than spring-like. I wish it would warm up a bit here.

                            Fair point, but soon be spring. Starting to see butterflies. Not today as they need wellies.
