Yesterday a couple of Bluebirds showed up eating the berries on the Pokeweed in our yard. This is my favorite song bird in the Northeast. This the first time photographing them this year. There was some light drizzle at the time.

Very nice shot, Joe. I believe it's a "little blue heron."

And my vote for the most brutal and prehistoric looking bird in Australia goes to the Channel Billed Cuckoo.

These large birds - larger than ravens or currawongs - winter in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea and then come down Eastern Australia to lay eggs in other birds nests before returning North.

Normally only coming down through Queensland and into New South Wales, this one has been coming to the outer east of Melbourne for the past few year, the most southerly aspect of its range.

Not the best shot as it remained high in the foliage, but happy to get a few record shots as I dipped out in the last two years.

Prehistoric looking is an apt description! Well captured!

Unknown LBJ in Andalucia. The heavy shadowing doesn't help, but any suggestions as to ID will be much appreciated, please. Could it be a Bonelli's Warbler?
Many thanks.

Thank you for the suggestion, although a few more ayes or nays might confirm it for me.... Thanks again.

Edit : Further head scratching, and I wonder if it's a Great Reed Warbler - a river was close by - although the beak might be a bit slender for this species?
