Great photos, summer.
The birds on the feeder are a Chaffinch with the grey head and pink breast, and a Great Tit with the black head and yellow breast.

Lovely pics summer.
Birds don't mind being photographed these days as long as they are being fed. Wink

DSCF2587 At first glance you might say juvenile Robin. But the snow and ice on the ground suggests a plumped up song-thrush. there is nothing in the shot to help indicate the SIZE.

2643 and 2645 are 'both the same' MALE chaffinch. His sister would look very similar but in dull green shades.

All the robins are robins. But how many know the robin is a thrush!

All the tits in all the shots are great tits EXCEPT 2604 which is a blue tit. often in Autumn and Winter tits 'congregate' andd you can see great tits, blue tits coal tits and long-tails all in one 'flock'. It'sa sight to behold. And behold it I did many times when I lived in Doon Co.Offally.

Keep snapping good buddy.
