We Get Colourful Birds Up North


It's that time of year. Bloggers all over the world are publishing pictures of exortic garden visitors feeding at their bird tables. There are Red Cardinals, Scarlet Macaws, Sky Bluebirds and the occasional Rainbow Trout : all of which tend to put my soot-encrusted sparrows to shame. But then, this morning, as I welcomed a new month and surveyed the damage done to my yellowing lawn by the acid rain, I spotted a rare and unusual visitor to my garden. I rushed to the bird books to help me identify my avian guest and I am pleased to announce to the world the first sighting of Passeridae Photoshopius Adobe in Yorkshire.

  4. Now wonder you get those exotic species with all that special food you serve them - not Yorkshire pudding I hope.

  6. I think you should create a bird book of your own. It could keep you busy finding all those longer bird names in the book.
