it's sunday and outside it's cold and rainy, sometimes snowing.

All the birds around are sad and searching for food.
Last year I offered them delicious seeds and nuts in my garden - so I hope they remember and come again this winter ;-)

Here they are:

looking to the right side:
Eurasian Siskin

Looking straight ahead:
Great Tit
Blue Tit

Looking to the left side:

I hope you like my colourful friends,
fresh shots are coming soon (I hope) ....
Enjoy the sunday.

Guten Morgen Sabine,

Muy interesante presentación Sabine, que reseña las variedades de maravillosas aves que tienes en tu propio jardín.M
Me agrada la forma de exponerlos, con buen POV en cada caso y bien elegidos para resaltar uno al lado del otro.
Una idea muy bien resuelta.
Gracias y un gran saludo... Ricardo

Very interesting presentation Sabine that review the varieties of wonderful birds that you have in your own garden.
I like the form of exposing them, with good POV in each case and good chosen to stand out one beside the other one.
An idea very well resolved.
Thank you and best regards... Ricardo

you are so lucky to have so many beautiful birds visit you! I love the collage you made of them all..the photos are all so bright and cheery perfect for the cloudy day I think alot of us are having!! TFS
Donna :o)

Are you sure you don't own a bird park?!
So many species in just one garden!? I only see about 3 species of birds here!
What a great collection and all with lovely colors and actions. Almost all has good sharpness. All GOOD DOP and bkground. Complimenting colors and a nice black frame to differentiate them all. Oh and i love how you placed them within the frame. Good arrangement, very appropriate.
I like this alot.

An impressive directory of "Who's Who" for the year 2006 in the form of this lovely collage of portraits from your garden, Sabine!
And there is a whole dozen of them!
I'm sure they will come back and warm your heart in the cold winters.
Thanks for the wonderful album.

What a nice montage with all these cute little friends. This is really well done Sabine with excellent details and POV on each bird. Those colors are very nice too and I must say that you have a nice diversity of birds in your garden! Well done and I hope that they'll be back this winter so we can enjoy them too :) Thanks,

Hallo Sabine,
entzückende Versammlung Deiner bunten Schar von kleinen Freunden! Ein Bild, das große Freude macht - und daran erinnert, dass auch in grauen Wintertagen in unserer Natur viel Schönes zu sehen sein wird. Wünsche Dir einen schönen Sonntagabend - und viele Herbst- und Wintergäste in Deinem Garten.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,

Hi Sabine

What a totally superb collection of Bird shots, I laughed whilst reading Stephs comment about you owning a bird park, you are so lucky to have all these visitors, I only have 5 of them in my Garden, the composition is very nicely presented with all their poses directed towards the center, nice detail and great colours in all the shots.

Hallo Sabine.
Uzbek people, when they saw a thing that is perfect, say: "Gap Yoq!" Means "No word" :) When I saw this beauty I said to myself Oh! Gap yoq!
Very very successful work my friend. Thanks for this beauty.

Hello Sabine,
Here I have already started the feeding season, but the magpies seem to scare the smaller ones away...
This is an awesome montage, 12 images well worthy of being posted alone...
I'm also impressed to learn you have them all in your garden!

Hi Sabine,
been a while- I guess the difference in time zones,
This is an excellently presented shot, a great idea I must add,
All images are well composed and in good details,
Great placement and I'm sure you must have spent alot of time in photographing and finally putting all of this together.

Worth the time & efforts :)
Cheers :D
