Different week same old Bull*****s



I spent the last couple of days looking for crossbills but couldn't find any anywhere. In fact just about the only birds around were the Bullfinches again.A bit repetitive, my only photos recently seem to be either Bullfinches or Nuthatches.............





There were only 4 of them, there were 6 or 7 last week. They have decimated the cherry blossom trees.





The snow is now the consistency of sorbet. Hopefully it will be mostly gone by the end of next week.................






These photos are from yesterday, the first time I'd seen blue skies in quite a while.





Thanks for clicking this link.......

  2. Great photos of the bullfinches! Seems like last month there was also a male bullfinch with entire pinkish belly here in Beppu, but I just happened to know about it few days ago, so will have to wait for another one.

    1. Hi Ayuwat, looking through my older photos it seems like there are quite a few pink ones or semi pink ones, perhaps intergrades between different subspecies?

  3. Fabulous shots there Stuart. if only I could get close to a Bullfinch, never mind take just a couple of shots like those.

    1. Hi Phil, you've probably had them in your hand, can't get much closer than that!

  4. Who cares about repetitive when they are this good? Some great poses and scoffing action.
    (P.S. Look at the video for Queen of the Reich by Queensryche on Youtube - it's hilarious).
