  1. The golden whistler is a beautiful looking bird, and what a little cutie that baby crested shrike-tit is! That’s a great find, even if it was by accident. Funny how you don’t know what you’ve photographed sometimes till you get home and look through the pictures, I’ve been surprised quite a few times myself like that. Enjoy the weekend! 🙂

    • Thanks Sue, yes it was a delight to discover the find as the bird is quite a distance away when looking through a tiny view finder it is difficult at times. I love hearing the whistlers in spring both the golden and rufous are beautiful and similar birds. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Thanks Kelly, it is always a delightful bonus when we capture something special in a photo unexpectedly. Yes, it is a busy time for the migratory birds preparing for their long flights. Our winter migrants are on their way back for the next few weeks, across the Pacific Ocean and down from northern Australia & New Guinea & SE Asia. It is always a buzz seeing them preparing to leave, and for some to don their breeding plumage.

  2. Nice finds! Especially that baby bird! I love it when I get nice surprises going through photos. Enjoy your spring hunting! Our fall migration has begun. Lots of birds busily feeding at my feeders fattening up for winter.

    • Thanks Anonymous, yes it is always a delightful bonus when we capture something special in a photo unexpectedly. I guess your winters are cold and birds may not get as much food, especially if their is snow?
