nest
Something a bit different...an upload from my iPhone. Last year we had a Black-capped Chickadee family. I’ve never seen their nest so decided to check out the old nest. A stunning masterpiece for such a small creature with no hands. Some moss, dry grass, and in the centre right, finer material. Not sure if they will want to reuse this birdhouse.

juvenile, winter plummage
A good way to start 2021 - with a lifer. Bonus that we didn't have an upload of this species either. Surrey, BC.
New Years resolutions 1) try to get out for photography even with the expanded family; 2) get Birdviewing 2.0 up and running :)

Algoma District - A treat for us so used to Red-winged Blackbirds. They have little in common with them except the family association. They are more approachable, spend most of the day ground feeding in grassy areas, fly about interacting with one another, have a very different call and males have an almost liquid metallic sheen.

Thought you might enjoy some of Africas's vultures- a real favourite family of mine and birds that are becoming more and more endangered.

The Bearded vulture is a bird of the mountains- Lestho is a great place to see them

Southern Africa is well represented as you might expect with members of the Heron and Egrets family (ardeidai). As vagrants we have even had Little Blue Heron and Snowy Egret. So to start a bird you all know well- Black-crowned Night Heron is common here in South Africa
