Singing robin

A bit hidden between the branches, but I was happy I could capture it.

Bob, do I understand correctly that these are recent shots? For me it is somewhat weird to see birds already nesting birds or chicks, but in then I guess Florida's warmer climate is quite different from the weather here in northern latitudes as during my passion ornithological expedition in blizzard I spotted this sort of sights:

Common blackbird (Turdus merula)

α7R IV + Sony FE 5.6-6.3/200-600 G OSS @ 600 mm, f/6.3, 1/1600 s, ISO 2000

Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos)

α7R III + Sony FE 4/24-105 G OSS @ 34 mm, f/6.3, 1/320 s, ISO 250

[QUOTE=Hezu] Bob, do I understand correctly that these are recent shots? Fo

All five pictures taken today. The Great Blue Herons start in late December and are finishing up now though some may go for a 2nd nest. From my observations Anhingas mate most all year. February thru May is prime time for most species. The Bald Eagles were a bit early this year. Those pictured were born on January 1. That means they were conceived in late November.

BTW, great shots. Thanks.

Instead of the ubiquitous Great Spotted Woodpecker, I finally managed to get a good shot of its nephew the Middle Spotted Woodpecker



For comparison here's the Great Spotted Woodpecker


And the smallest family member: The Lesser Spotted Woodpecker

Shots were taken on different days with different lighting and background

Thanks Fred

The differences are significant.
The MSW has a red cap and pink belly
The GSW has a black cap and an orange forehead
The LSW is much smaller, has a red cap but no pink belly
(says the guy that learned this stuff only yesterday )
