Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!


The photos on this blog are all taken by me. If there is any picture you might want to use for any other than personal use, please drop me a line to the email address shown in the sidebar on the right.

JJ steps back into the Frame.

After two weeks without my camera, the birds were getting slack. They had stopped their usual minute of posing.

Today though, just telling the postman that he had made my day, made me feel good already, because I knew that him knocking the door meant that he would have something to deliver!

Francis was already standing at the kitchendoor, looking up at the sky, to see if I would be able to get out on a ride to the bay, but could tell him that the weather was too wishy washy. (I had been out of bed a lot longer already by then!)

Anyway, enjoy JJ's photos. I am just glad my camera is back and working properly again.

And just as I am uploading my photos onto this blog, these pictures were born, thanks to this littlevisitor, not as welcome as my Garden birds though.
Looking at its markings, I'm surprised that it is the same colour/markings, as the one I have photographed before and posted here last summer, I think.


  1. woo hoo. i can feel your relief

  2. You must be delighted to have your camera back now Yoke. JJ's looking as handsome as ever!

  3. thanks, guys.

    yes, Pete, I know you can feel it, cause I could sense your emotions at my temporary loss.

    I know you were all rooting for my camera to get back home soon, yet perhaps this two week separation was a good start for spring and summer's activity, which will start soon? who knows..

  4. JJ is GORGEOUS! What a guy!!

  5. Crow, I agree with you totally. End May I will do a JJ's First Year in Pictures.

    My first photo of him as fledgling is taken on the 1 June. So that will be apt as a way to celebrate his/her birthday.
