    What beautiful bird images, BigBilly. :D You, most certainly, do a great deal to help your bird friends through the cold weather & there are plenty of colourful subjects for your wonderful photography. Have never heard of cheese being used for birds to feed on before but they sure do like it. :lol3:

    Thank you for posting these great pics, BB. :smile:

    Lovely bird photos BB. I am especially fond of the Blue tits, I love their colouring. I bet they love your place with all that great food around :) . That first photo shows you have had a fair amount of snow. Thanks for the pics

    What fabulous bird shots, BigBilly. You certainly get a wide range of wonderful & very colourful birds in your yard. The view from your kitchen is great. They are so different to the types of birds we have.

    Many thanks for posting these beautiful images. I love them.

    Those are awesome, BigBilly! We don't get many interesting birds here...except sparrows, doves, and scrub jays.

    What a top shot of the male blackbird feeding its young, BigBilly. It is outstanding. :bravo: Love the pic of the yellow hammers too. I see they have been in serious decilne in the UK so it is excellent to see them in your bird-friendly garden paradise.

    Thank you for these great shots. :D

    My word, that is a very handsome & unusual looking bird, BigBilly, especially for a member of the crow family. Do you know what it is called??? Your garden certainly does attract a wide range of beautiful birds, doesn't it?? Probably because they know they will receive a warm welcome there. :lol3:

    Thank you for showing us this wonderful bird, BB. It is much appreciated. :D

    Australia doesn't have jays & it is great to see such pics, BigBilly. You do have a knack for taking fantastic bird images. Thanks again for sharing them with us.

    What fantastic bird images you have captured, BigBilly. They are great!! These birds are so attractive. The juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker is such a eye-catcher with its wonderful plumage. The other two are very pretty birds as well.

    What is in the bird feeders, BB??? Is it peanuts?? Whatever it is, I'll bet the birds are happy to have the feeders available, to help them through this unsummery summer. :lol3:

    Thank you, so much, for posting these pics of the wonderful birds that visit your garden.

    to the feeders

    That was a lucky guess on my part, eh, BigBilly?? :lol3: Birds are quick to find good, reliable sources of food. Your feeders are probably lifesavers for many of these birds with the rotten weather limiting their natural foods.

    Your reward is seeing so many beautiful birds in your garden. :bravo:

    Lovely! BB, very, very nice bird pics, lovely close ups which make them ultra special. The one of the blackbirds feeding, so many people would love to get that shot! I love them all, thanks for putting them up. :cheers:

    What a beauty it is, BigBilly. We love raptors & are fortunate to have several species of them which call our village home.

    Your sparrow hawk looks as though it is a little cranky, as well as slightly embarrassed, at missing out on a feed. :lol3: It is quite a small raptor, especially when it is seen against the nasturtiums, so I guess its prey would be small birds & rodents. Perhaps it thought while it was there it would check that there wasn't a little mouse running about in the nasturtiums. :lol:

    These are great images, BB. You do take wonderful bird pics. Thank you for posting them.
