  1. love it... see it a lot around here

  2. Our hares are upset Lea. Not rabbits but European hare (Lepus europaeus), also known as the brown hare. Love you Killdeer but we don't get those in Europe, just our Starling.

  3. Hi Lea , unfortunately the starling has declined in numbers here in the UK , so we don't see as many as we use to. I love your header photo by the way.
    Take care, Gordon.

  4. Wonderful feathered friends photo and 'preening' ~ great word for ABC

    Wishing you a Happy Week ~ ^_^

  5. Nice photos! I like starlings!

  6. LOL, they are all busy preening. Great captures. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  7. What a fine collection Lea.... I have never thought of sorting my (gazillions of) bird pictures this way -- (depending on their actions). A great idea. And great pictures illustrating this behavior.


I enjoy your comments!
