This fella was seen earlier this afternoon. It has been observed in Denmark for the last 5 days now, but in the last 20 years it is only second time this specie have been observed in Denmark. (I have seen it in Spain several times)

Good grief! It looks a bit chilly and must have turned the wrong way, as it should have flown south by now. Even the ones in Andalucia have migrated already, as we found to our disappointment at the end of September. Great find for you, though.

Very nice. Angle, background, colors, it all just works well together.

These are lovely poses.
Beautiful colours in both.

Songbirds at Bombay Hook NWR.
Lincoln's Sparrow.
Yellow-rumped Warbler.

Lovely little birds, playing their own elusiveness no doubt.
The Warbler is a very nice small bird.

Flame-colored Tanager

A very colourful & striking bird.

Another rare visiter to the stream

Love the natural lookingness of this scene.
Bit of patience rewarded I imagine.

Jan that's beautiful. Lovely small bird, clear, sharp and colourful

Very happy to get several shots of these little birds last month. Black-throated sparrow.

Very pretty Sparrow. Different to many.

Ellekrage - (Coracias garrulus) - European Roller

Very different but beautifully marked and coloured bird.
Love the setting.

These are all beautifully photographed selection of small birds. Some quite quirky.

I am totally amazed at how many wonderful shots are continuously posted on this thread, and the few other threads that I currently subscribe too here on POTN. It's overwhelming trying to keep up with all the outstanding images that continuously get posted up here. I've been away for 3 days, and in that time period, I had around 350 notifications to view and try to comment on when I returned late in the afternoon, and turned on my computer. From now until the end of January, I'll be away from my computer four days a week, and as much as I love to comment on many of the fine shots on the various threads, I'm going to have to settle on using the "like" button almost exclusively. I bring this up because I've enjoyed making comments on the many images that really appeal to me, but I simply won't be able to continue doing that...there simply isn't the time. It bothers me considerably, but that's what I'm going to have to do.
