I hope you're all enjoying spring as much as I am. I've been getting acquainted with the resident great/blue tits and finches in my garden. I also had a family of ring necked parakeets visit the pear tree last winter. Although they're quite common in the south (London) all year...
Hi All - a little phone shot my son sent me this morning that I can't seem to identify. Thought Male House sparrow at first because of the black bib, but the head looks too black. Can someone enlighten me please?
