I thought we had some colourful birds but these are prettier by far.

To quote crewl1, I can't think of a better word to describe this series than "Wow".

Gorgeous series !!! You are clearly a master of your Sigma 500 mm.

(As an aside, I also like the way you did your watermark; it has no distracting effect for me at all.)

Gorgeous shots. I'm as green as the back of the female Hill Blue Flycatcher with envy.
Is the Mugimaki Flycatcher a Ficedula?

You sure know how to make me go into a deep depression Ken. When is the book coming out? If there isn't one there sure should be.
