A repost of one of my early entries.
Cute, isn’t it? This little guy here is a long-tailed tit, the bird I’ve encountered only 2-3 times in my life. And only once I had a chance to take some reasonable pictures of them. It was almost exactly 3 years ago. The flock of about 10 pieces was feeding on a tree’s branches right above the street and sidewalk. I could understand sparrows but these ones ?!
With my Wife we spent almost half an hour observing and photographing them as they were not showing any signs of anxiety and continued their meal. It is still one of my best birdwatching experiences ever.
Here are some more shots:
