Interesting day today in terms of birds and fish. A moorhen in the far distance was swimming back and forth with what something bright and which could have been a fish in its mouth. And it was. I had no idea they could would eat fish.

The birds are back in my garden! For the past few days, there has been a dawn chorus. And this morning the blue and great tits have returned. Here is a great tit welcoming the sun at the top of a tall tree. This shot means a lot to me - the local bird photography now awaits.

I have been trying for years to get a good shot of a Bullfinch, but have only ever got poor ones at a distant. I tried this morning where some had been sighted but no luck. Then, on leaving, there was one by the car park, not completely clear and only just close enough to see any detail. But, it is the best I have been able to do so far.

I just had a pretty purple finch in my feeder, but it flew off before I could grab my camera!
Tons of different kinds of birds here where I'm at; (North Georgia Mountains)
When's a good time to visit and where? I like traveling in the US.
