It just amazes me you Ozzies can just walk out your back or front yard and see these birds in abundance.
There's a dozen sitting outside my window right now, waiting for a snack.
I normally get about 25 twice a day.

I did get a bird this evening that's hard to capture because they usually don't sit at the feeders for a long time.

The Tufted Titmouse, he looks wet.
Not all I'm afraid Photolady....;just sparrows and galahs here.

last of the warblers

Unless I should be lucky enough to catch shots of some of the resident ones. Here is a wilson; a tennessee; and a ruby crowned kinglet.
Best Regards, Bob

Not quite a Bird in Flight but a bobbin Robin. I seem to only have one young Robin this year and it is keeping to the shadows at the moment but I caught him briefly in the sunlight.

The title of the "rhymes with orange" thread is ironic Lidy - it is said that in English nothing rhymes with "orange".

The OP in that thread, @Thagomizer, has started a series of interesting colour-themed threads, including these:

Thanks! Nice thread.
I hope there are words in Dutch that rhyme with "oranje", if only to make it easier to write nationalist songs. ;-)

Hahaha, uhm ... off the top of my head: no, not too many and even then you'd probably have to skip the last letter in pronunciation. I'll think about it for a bit though. And don't get me started about writing national songs ...

While on the topic of the word Orange while off topic, allegedly the word for this indian sub-continent citrus fruit was orignally 'Naranj' - the n transferred to the preceding article over time... Still hard to rhyme with any word in English however. Reference
