Garden Bird Pictures

Post by lowveldboy » Mon May 21, 2012 11:48 pm

A place where we can all post pics of birds in our gardens.

The amount of birds that can be seen in gardens is surprising!!! Some people have big gardens (Sprocky and Scipio in phalagat has the best). Post all the pics, no matter if the bird is common or not.

LET US SHARE!!!!

We saw this robin feeding a red-chested cuckoo in our garden a couple of years ago, and haven't seen it since!

I took these pics of the Spotted Thick-Knee (Spotted Dikkop) late one drizzly afternoon in my Aunts garden.
