It looks beautiful among the red fruit. I greet the new year.
You're back, happy new year Giga.
super om zo het jaar te beginnen.
Yes, thanks Bas.
Des sangliers dans le coin !?Bonne année et merci pour vos photos.JP.
It's a long time since I've seen Fieldfare.
They were lots of them here, funny that you didn't catch one.
Lovely girl ! I like very much you first photo, with the berries, very very beautiful. in France we call this bird Grive Litorne. I love his colours.I wish you an Happy an healthy new year Bob, for you and your family.Cheers
Grive Litorne, it sounds lovely, thanks Nathanaëlle.
...at peace with his surroundings. Beautiful, Bob.
Yes, it's nice, thanks Dawn.
I think you summed up the Fieldfare's feeding habits Bob.We don't have many hawthorn berries left here though.
I wouldn't have noticed him the first time if you didn't mention it
beautiful! i hope the berries are ripe!
Che nitide queste foto! grazioso il tuo soggetto! ciao Bob! Cristina : )
Thank you Cri, you are so kind.
Bob....Your top image is my kind of perfection in wildlife photography, a bird in it's natural habitat , not looking like it's in a glass case in a museum....EXCELLENT.
Hola Bob,bellas fotos y postales navideñas,Un abrazo
What a gorgeous shot against those brilliant red berries :)
Well Wendy, I have to say it, thank you.
I'm enjoying the Fieldfare photos, I'm always struck with how much they resemble the North American Robins in demeanor. The grey head and fancy brown-edged chest feathers are lovely. Then today I saw a Robin in the yard, I thought they had all flown away for the winter.
Ah, Robins are a lot more different, the red on its belly, but yours is beautiful Hannah.
Bob, the Fieldfare is such a nice looking bird. Especially when photographed by an expert!!
Great series on the Fieldfare, Bob! I like the first shot in the berries.. Happy weekend!
Cheers Eileen, yes everybody thinks like that, thanks.
Wonderful pictures of the Fieldfare,Bob!Lovely bird!Like the first photo with the bird hiding through the red berries!Superb!Dimi...
Thank you Dimi, everybody seems toward the first.
They do have beautiful markings - well captured.
I have tried and tried to comment here today. Fingers/toes/eyes crossed that this time I succeed. I love him/her in hiding, I love him/her posing in the open - but the intent expression in the last photo has won my heart.
EC, you love the last one, um, you're the only one, lol.
Very beautiful shots Bob! Happy New year!!
Thanks, happy new year also.
