Garden Birds at Breakfast Time

Often while having my breakfast I sit at a window looking onto my back garden (with camera) and watch the birds that arrive in a 15 minute period.   The small birds are a bit tricky  to photograph as thy are so quick at the feeders so I thought I might catch more footage on video which you will see at the end of the post.
 
 
I have 2 Collared Doves come regularly however only one of them was there that morning.
 
 

There is always a Robin in my  garden and I think sometimes he thinks he is a Hummingbird as he tries to hover at the feeders!

 

The Coal, Blue and Great Tits are regular visitors however do not stay long on the feeders but quickly dash into the bushes and trees to consume the seeds.  I managed to catch a few more birds on the video so hopefully you will enjoy it.

The video can be accessed at

I hope you enjoyed the birds that arrived in my back garden the other day.

Thank you for visiting.

  6. Very nice! The video is really good. I've posted a couple, but I'm clearly not in the same class as you.
    When I see a single dove, I always wonder if something happened to it's mate. We've had a mated pair around our house for several years. For the past six months or so, there has only been one. I have to admit that it makes me a bit sad.

  7. How nice to see someone else who gets distracted by their avian visitors. We spend a LOT of time looking out our windows at the birds each day - and I thoroughly enjoyed looking through your windows at your birds. Thank you.

  8. The Great Tit is a new bird for me! Why the name, is it like a huge titmouse, yet it does not look like one. Your blue flowers are so pretty, what are they?

  11. Garden birds are always good value to watch.

    I though of a few "passing through the heads" jokes /puns but thankfully I thought better of it!

  14. Watching from the house when its raining, sounds like a good plan to me Margaret.
    That Collared Dove appeared to have quite a distinct black ring around its neck, more than usual I thought.
