Lovely Christmas cards in this thread. They have reminded me of a bird from our Lower Rio Grande Valley trip, back in 2011.

Pyrrhuloxia, sometimes called the Southern Cardinal.

Merry Christmas to all,

The 'southerns' are even more beautiful. Great capture.

Dolphin, Pelican encounter
Hi Folks,
Here's an image of a determined Brown Pelican,
trying to steal-a-meal from a Masterful Dolphin.
East coast, Central Florida.
Happy New Year,
Paul

Thanks Jack.
That comical Dolphin likes to toss fish high into the air, fascinating behavior.
Here's a few more snaps.
Happy new year,

Absolutely fabulous Weja, I only ever see them in dark places usually under bridges. Very well done!

Happy New Year to you all. I hope you don't mind seeing more than one shot of this stunning Penduline Tit. They are very rare to see in the UK in fact this one has got into the local media in Gloucester. I waited near on 2 hours for it to show. It stayed very low down in the reeds and on occasion would briefly/partially show itself. It was then a good hour waiting for a clear un-obscured shot between the reeds.
There were about a dozen serious bird twitchers watching it... one of whom travelled 160 miles. Luckily I was only an hour away.

Happy new year to you as well. Were it ringed locally...? (Here in Denmark they are quite rare as well, even we have a few pairs breeding every year)
