Awesome images in this series, Malte!  Congrats, they are really beautiful!  What bird is this?  The woodpecker I know, but I'm not familar with this other bird.  Looks like a cross between some sort of Titmouse and a Warbler and a Blue Jay!  So pretty!  Love the line down the breast too, great images!


i have searched the english name:

wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Tit

the blue tit is as numerous as sparrows here in germany.  ;)
and they are the first at the feeding station.. 10-20 seconds after they visit the feeding station the sparrows arrive.

when they fly away they are the first to come back short after them the sparrows... the bue tit is a cheeky little bird.
that´s what i learned the past 2 days.

hell im really a bird noob, i have so much to learn about their behavior. :)

Took this photo a while back, bit to noisy for my liking.

This is a African Gray Parrot, taken again, from just outside my house. I get these birds seasonally, They fly from West Africa every Sept / Oct / Dec to mate.

Caught this fellow through the kitchen window.  Shot through the window pane and all. 
5diii with 70-200 f4 at 200, iso 100, f10. 1/200.  Only PP was cropping and a bit of warming in WB.  I think I really like this camera!

Hi Ken, Thanks.

Its Laughing Kookaburra, as you thought related to the Kingfisher, there are very common in Australia, very happy with the detail and the colours of the shots.

Great image of the Road Runner Jpaz!  Nice contrast with the background.  Good job!

Awesome images in this series, Malte!  Congrats, they are really beautiful!  What bird is this?  The woodpecker I know, but I'm not familar with this other bird.  Looks like a cross between some sort of Titmouse and a Warbler and a Blue Jay!  So pretty!  Love the line down the breast too, great images!


i have searched the english name:

wiki:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Tit

the blue tit is as numerous as sparrows here in germany.  ;)
and they are the first at the feeding station.. 10-20 seconds after they visit the feeding station the sparrows arrive.

when they fly away they are the first to come back short after them the sparrows... the bue tit is a cheeky little bird.
that´s what i learned the past 2 days.

hell im really a bird noob, i have so much to learn about their behavior. :)

The blue tit (along with the several other European tit species) are in the same family (Paridae) as the titmouse and chickadee. The Latin name used to be Parus caeruleus, but they've reclassified it as Cyanistes caeruleus. The coal tit looks very similar to a chickadee.

Then you have the great tit.

My favourite is probably the crested tit, probably because of the rarity, but I only have a single very distant shot from several years ago. I haven't even seen the equally rare bearded tit, unless you count a speck through binoculars, where I wouldn't have been able to ID it without someone else telling me it was there.
