Wild Bird Wednesday

The amazing photos of birds posted by this group are wonderful to see.  Mine pale in comparison, of course, but it is fun to participate all the same.   Mostly, I love to go and look at their photos.

Today I'm posting this one because I haven't a clue what it is ... and, I bet lots of the birders in the group will recognize it and let me know.

I spotted it in my sister's garden in B.C. when I was there... it didn't sit still very long when it did land, so I got lucky to get a couple shots of it.... I'm thinking it is some sort of flycatcher, but can't swear to it.  Anybody know what it is for sure?





If you want to see some absolutely amazing photos check out the site by clicking on this cute little guy below...



PS...... later in the day......

Aha!!  see that?  The first birder that took a look confirmed it...a flycatcher... but, ... which one is still up in the air.  I didn't see it for very long and definitely didn't get to see much of the antics Chris mentioned...but,..hey... I guessed correctly and am happy with that ....thanks Chris for stopping by to check out my little guy....

I'll pick up an extra bag of ice cubes for you:) You have a flycatcher in that photo. BUT which one, I don't know! This is the trickiest group to ID because we have to observe behavior...bobbing of the tail...is it up? or is down? does it bob at all? What call does it make? So in short, it's one of those birds:) Thanks for commenting on my blog. Wild Bird Wednesday is a great place to meet other bloggers. Look forward to the your posts. Chris

I am loving your nature pictures. I don't have a camera well.. Actually my husband has a nice camera but I am not camera savy so I don't bother fiddling around withe camera to take pictures. I like something that will just click and go :-)

Cute shots of your Flycatcher!

Very nice, and if this had been in England, it would have been far easier to ID as we only have 2 flycatchers, which look very different from each other!! Thanks for your visit :0)
