Garden Birds

While having my breakfast a few weeks ago I thought I would video (through my window) the birds that came to my feeders.  All winter I have had this female Blackcap and I have enjoyed watching her in the garden.  For the previous few years there has been a male Blackcap which was quite aggressive to some of the smaller birds however she did not seem to be like the male. That day I only had the Sparrows (M & F), the Blackbirds (M & F), my Collared Doves and my friendly Robin.  I have a video at the end so just sit back and join me at breakfast time.

























The video can be accessed at

That’s all for today so I hope you enjoyed seeing the birds in my garden.

Thank you for visiting.

Many thanks for commenting on any of my posts.

  1. I'd love to have a regular garden Blackcap like that Margaret. Only ever seen one in my garden, a male just for a day or two a few winters ago around Christmas Day.

  4. Your feeder array allows the birds a bit of space which may reduce the competition between them. Nice for me to see House Sparrows as we do not have them here away from downtown and the shopping centers. Thanks for the pleasant visit to your garden!

  7. Lovely female Blackcap Margaret.
    You don't get too many opportunities like this as they are never so bold as the males.

  13. You captured a fine series of bird images. Nice variety of species. I like the video which let us watch how the birds relish the seed balls.

  17. For me there are only sparrows and blackbirds.
    I also I feed the birds. Especially pheasants are thirsty for food.
    Beautiful bird pictures.
    I wish you a nice weekend.
    Greetings.

  24. Margaret, your female Blackcap is sweet. And I love the cute Robin! Lovely photos and video.. Have a happy weekend!

  25. I love the way the one bird is all puffed up! My, you feed them a lot of food, but I know it goes down fast. I need to find these big balls of food, they are cool. And also they would not fall to the ground as much so the squirrels get the food.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  27. I liked the contrasts . . . soft, misty, striking, soft again and the gentle rocking of the feeders in the video . . .
