Bird of the Week Challenge: 23rd Feburary - LBBs

Happy Monday all - great photos once again last week! Lovely to see some new posters as well.

 

Lets do another we have done before, those LBB's - little brown birds! They can be tricky to photograph but they are so gorgeous.

Lovely photo Annie.

Golden -Headed Cisticola are pretty small. This photo shows how small given the grass looks huge next to it.

Since its been nearly 24 hrs since anyone has posted I thought I would put this one up.

While its not a great photo I got it a few weeks ago at Oxley Common and was a lifer for me (Not that I'm a twitcher) but always exciting to discover a new bird.
