I think that might be quite possible identification, the beak certainly looks more appropriate for a tree creeper than for a sparrow, which has wider beak. But these bird youngsters are tad harder to identify than the adults...

Add my praise for the avocet too!

Closer to home, here's a robin eyeing up some welshcake in Pembrokeshire









All A7III and FE 70-300 G OSS

All very cute to get the crumb thrown. There's a narrow DOF and in the last photo I like how the bird almost makes it into the zone with the tip of the beak. I need bird eye AF on the camera!

Pileated Woodpecker nestling waiting for food. Lighting was poor. I will have to go back tomorrow or Sunday in the afternoon when the sun is more behind me.

I went out birding this afternoon and was delighted to see the spring migration in full flight. The warblers were more keen to get their next meal than they had fear of the human beings. They often landed half a metre away from me.

Here are a few from the visit.

Yellow warblers.

Tennesse warblers

Yellow-rumped warbler

Cape May warbler (a first for me)


Non-warblers

Swamp sparrow



American coot
