The Feisty Fieldfare

I think I am a bit OCD with photography as Christmas day I could not resist a few images of a Fieldfare in the garden. These feisty little thrushes defend every bit of food they find. They love apples and defended them against all other incomers.


  1. Hi Sam, I hope you all had a good Christmas.
    Great shots of the Fieldfares, their blue-grey head and nape make it a beautiful bird. I spent Christmas day at Stithians photographing Goldcrests and Redwings feeding near the boardwalk area. A flock of 30-40 Fieldfare flew overhead in loose formation but landed on the other side of the lake out of reach for photos.
    Have a Happy New Year!

  2. Nice photos - kind of reminds me of our Meadowlark!

  3. Cracking images such vivid colours as were your Waxwing shots.

  4. Why wouldn't you want to be out capturing these beauties ? Lovely collection.
