I had never even heard of a Fieldfare before I saw this picture Peter but I can say I [know more[(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fieldfare) now.
Unlikely to see any in my home country or down here in Oxfordshire, this time of year.
Greetings from here to there.
Have you been to the City of Dreaming Spires?
We stopped here to get a good look at a group of Fieldfares, but when we got the binoculars out we were amazed to see that there were hundreds on the field. They were well camouflaged to the naked eye.
I am convinced that you can always see something different if you look!
Best wishes, Peter
Hey Peter yes I have been to Oxford (is that the right city?) many times. Great for photography.
Our new world Thrasher is not unlike your Fieldfare.
My wife and I have a theory that if you sit and wait long enough interesting things will always come to you.
All the best from Jethro
Surely you are both right!
“A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.”
Enjoy you holiday! Peter
Yes, tis certainly true. My life is much richer now I have slowed down enough to see what has been around me all those years.
I shall attempt to memorize that one Peter. Thank you!
It is form the poem by William Henry Davies
IT's funny, I don't see any bird in this photo! Great landscape photo!
Fieldfares are a winter visitor to us, and although having seen several before, we had not seen so many together. I took the photo with the hope of estimating how many were there. On the thumbnail, and even clicking to the full size, you are hard pressed to find one! If you click to enlarge you can make out a few to the left to the clump of trees.
I have enlarged the picture further and they can not be made out from the field, but there were hundreds in the distance no kidding!
Here is a link to a web picture of the Fieldfare and shows perhaps why they blend into the field.
Well, I know what they look like. Kind like the Redwing. I just don't happen to see any in this photo, probably because they're camouflaged.
