Default Birds - 2nd batch

Hey all. Here's the 2nd batch of birds, taken same day as the thread for the 1st batch.

These are of the Eurasian Nuthatch (Sitta europaea) Female. The Male is significantly more colorful on it's tummy. The Female is almost pale.

1/160 sec at f / 5,6 ISO 800 @ 200mm focal length




I've straightened the photos this time and made 100% crops also. I wanted to keep the focus on the Nuthatch. It's quite aggressive, when Blue Tits came to get food they got scared off buy the Nuthatch, which actually taunts them by the looks of it.
If you want any full frame that may feature other birds, just say and I'll upload them

Hope you like them.

Here's another Eurasian Nuthatch (probably the same) although taken at a different angle.

Its really odd that you have the same birds as we have here. Namely chickadees and nuthatches. But while our two birds are black, grey and white yours are blue. For one species to be that way is odd but for both to be that way is really odd. Are all your birds blue? Do you have a blue cardinal?
