February 20th 2008.
A male Crossbill very close to my flat. This was part of a small flock that spent late winter/early spring 2008 in the local neighbourhood, alternating between different clumps of pine trees. I got up very early in the morning for this shot, they were drinking in the river and weren't shy at all.........
Crossbills: my favourite bird.
Super photograph and really love that strange background..er, oh blue sky! I'd forgotten. I'd love to see a Crossbill.ReplyDelete
