In reply to Mike B:
This could have been fabulous but had to be taken, despite the partially blocked point of view, as one of my first really good sightings of a Cetti's
Can you tell what it is yet?
I have loads like that but luckily a few better ones, too... :)
In reply to Nigel O:
I'd take bad pics of a Cetti's anytime lol
No guesses as to who this is with his head stuck in the mealie dish - looks like pigs ears with a chocolate flake stuck in the top ha ha !!

In reply to turboman:
lol Terry, I can see the blue so believe you !! long time since I've seen a KF.
I believe the KF as well, Terry!
Hazel, I believe you could do with a shorter-sided mealie bowl!

Another failed attempt at a Cetti's Warbler as it opted to perch between numerous twigs - as they do ! No time to switch focus to manual so this is what you get LOL

Wonder if someone (not me) might have a Dickie tummy!
