Beards & Spoons

Bearded Tits and Spoonbills, both birds are new to me and both are not easy to get close to. The Bearded Tits were easier, especially the beautifully marked female, who insisted on checking me out and was never more than a couple of meters away. The male however, sporting a fine moustache, was far more difficult and decided to keep partially hidden a little further away. Quick little birds too, making them great fun to play with.
After this, the Spoonbills were a bonus. They spent their time quite a way away, but it was still a treat to see them.

Great pictures of the BT - this is a bird I have failed to see on so many occasions it has become a joke!!

Feel free to link this post (and future ones) to Wild Bird Wednesday that runs on my photos blog.
