My first birds of 2013.......................................................................................

I am nursing a sore head from drinking too much last night and all my plans for today have gone array.

Instead of visiting my local woods to see how many birds I could count on the first day of the year I have made do with the garden... my count so far is just eight.

 My first bird of 2013 was this little Coal Tit

 Chaffinch

My faithful little Robin

These were the first to visit and were captured through the window as I am still in a state of undress.
Happy New Year to you all.

Ouch! Sorry about the hangover! No celebrating here on the farm. I fell asleep at 8:30 pm. What a loser!

Love your little 2013 birds.

I just catching up on blogs I follow and so glad to see these beauties. Also enjoyed the short clip BUT the red deer is absolutely stunning!

It's a pity we get when imbibing rather a lot. But still, you got your birds.

Michelle said...

New Year's Day is made for staying at home, relaxing. Nice shots!

mick said...

Happy New Year and here's hoping you see lots more birds - when that head feels a bit better!

Stewart M said...

If nature had a plan you would have had something very noisy in garden - two or three Jays maybe? - just to tune up your sore head!!

Nice pictures.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Happy New Year friend! We used to have New Year's Days like that (except without the wonderful garden birds)...but we aged out of them ;>)

Thought I'd leave my comment a few days to give your eyes time to focus again :) hope you have a fabulous 2013.

Interesting birds. Your Coal Tit resembles our chickadees. It was a sad day when the house next door sold and the new folks moved in. No more running to the backyard in pjs.

Hope the head is better Happy New Year love the little Robin.

Happy New Year to you too! :)
