Coal tit (periparus ater)

Coal Tit visited the feeding station yesterday.

Great tit (parus major)

Today was the first real winter day, – 11 C and sun shine.  Looks hat light falls nicely  on my shooting place.  Even at mid day and the sun shining there is still not enough light to freeze the object.  Here the tit is not even in focus.

Black bird (turdus merula)

I take photos by Canon EOS 1DMIIN + EF 500/4L IS from beneath of my terrace  by a remote control which I am using  from inside the house.  My intention is to shot  birds visiting the station.  The first was a female blackbird today 13.12.2009.
