A few birds from the garden.............................................................................

Just a few birds from my garden today.
I am due to have my knee op on Tuesday (it's been brought forward a day) so hopefully I will be getting out and about a bit more soon.

A Robin on the new metal feeder... this feeder has survived the squirrels attempts to destroy it so far.

My garden hoovers the Woodpigeons are ever present as usual...

 ...taking a drink after wolfing down the peanuts I had put out.

 I now have a pair of Robins in the garden...

 ...but I haven't managed to capture a pic of both of them together.

The male Blackbird was also using the bird bath.

The Robins are still using the hole in my fence to come and go.

Good luck with your new leg. How long will it take?

Good luck with the knee Andrew.
I'm sure things will be fine. Modern knees are better than old.
I see you are picking up crap. The previous comment is anyonesymouses. Just uncheck anonymous in comment settings. Don't put on the daft Ketchup thingy a real pain that is.
When you get your new legs try not to shoot the girlfriend....It is frowned upon.

Sharp bird photos. Using a tripod? I'll be thinking of you Tuesday. Be strong.

Dear Andrew,

Hi Andrew...All lovely crisp clear shot's of your garden friends ...I like the water shaking of the dove!!
Don't push the getting out to soon after surgery!! I had physical therapy for weeks after mine until it was right!! If you don't you could have a limp on that knee when you walk..that's what happened to a friend of mine who had that surgery and no therapy..just suggesting!!
Hope all goes well on Tuesday!!

Love ALL the pics! The pigeon looks like a clay fixture - amazing. So glad you posted a shot of the 'little door'. I sure have been wondering if they are still using it :)
Will be sending good thoughts for you on Tuesday. Hang in there...let them take good care of you and it will all be okay!
**((virtual hugs))**

Best of luck on the surgery and a quick recovery! The birds are beautiful.

I had to do a double take on your pigeon shots - they almost look ceramic. Very colorful robins - our variety is a duller brown. Great images.

Madge Bloom said...

Love those Robins, ours here have a red breast that covers much more of the underbody... good luck too... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #71!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Nice shots! The robins are so cute. Good luck with your knee op!

Arija said...

All the best for your knee op. Hope you are up and running very soon.
Love all your home birds and congrats on having a resident pair of robins.

Pantherka said...

Good luck with your knee!
Greetings.

Haha ! Had to laugh at your description of the doves Andrew, hoovers are exactly what they are, even way out here in Oz. hope all goes well tomorrow with the knee op, you'll feel like a new man soon. Take care.

Adam Tilt said...

That wood pigeon really does look like it is wooden. Amazing bit of photography. What a precious robin. We are not seeing any of them these days. genie
