They look like the Blue Tits found here in the UK… Nice images indeed.
Thanks so much for visiting!
I’ve seen little round birds like that also here in Minnesota, but only when it’s warm.
Getting back to you, I think they were a Rufous-naped Tit (Periparus rufonuchalis)
You get such great close-ups! What kind of camera do you use?
Thanks! It’s a Canon PowerShot SX720 HS. It’s a simple point-and-shoot, but it has a 40x zoom. It’s great for bird close ups, because I usually just use the automatic setting. Mine is a few years old. I believe there is an updated one that is even better.
Sounds like it’s easy to use. Is it light weight?
A bit heavier than some point and shoots, but very easy to handle.
Very easy to use, although it is a bit heavier than some cameras in its class.
wonderful pictures. Thanks
Wow wonderful presentation of this bird. Loved his blue mane.
Thanks! The mane is actually more black-ish than blue-ish, depending on the sunlight.
Hmm yes and they sure change depending on the day. Welcome.
Such a privilege to see such good photos, and of birds I probably won’t see in the wild any time soon.
Thanks so much. WordPress has been so interesting for me, as I view and learn about the everyday life and thoughts of people beyond the United States. The other day I was commenting to an Australian bird watcher that I would be overjoyed to look out of my window and see lorikeets on my deck like the ones he had posted!😊 Truly, it had been a blessing to focus on “the world” as I try to make my way through these difficult times in America. I got off Facebook a while back when I couldn’t abide Zuckerman and realized that was changing
….that I was not changing anyone’s opinions with my postings.SO to me seems a much more helpful vehicle for understanding.
I’ve had a similar journey in a way. WordPress is better for the arts in general. By the way, I get lorikeets on my veranda too 🙂
😉 ….Lorikeets on my Veranda…I’m feeling like there’s a poem in there somewhere!
I’ll have to work on that 🙂
That’s “WordPress seems to me”…ah, the joys of autocorrect!
Beautiful little birds. I too have just realised how similar they are to the Great Tits I have seen when visiting the UK.
My dad loved the black capped chickadees. Here in Oklahoma we have Carolina chickadees.
Your farm looks so wonderful, and, being a New England woman, I never realized how beautiful the prairie is😮 What kind of camera are you using? Your pics are so clear!
Nikon and an iphone7
