One of the ladies drinking on her own…………….
I hate to say it but all this Corona downtime has left me lots of time with the Crossbills in Hakodate……..like these 2 males coming down for a drink.
The last photos of the Crossbills at Oshamanbe, these are from the start of last week.
My favourite bird species and I never tire of them (you may have noticed).
These ones were especially tame and I had my 500mm lens with me too.
Not only Crossbills this winter……….
There are Redpolls everywhere too. There was a flock of a dozen or so in Hakodate this week. Not as easy to photograph as their red relatives though.
In case you’re in lockdown and not tired of Crossbills…………
You may have noticed I’ve posted loads of Crossbill shots lately. Most of them were from Oshamanbe 2 weeks ago but 1 week ago we went and the same group was in the same place……….
They are everywhere this year, I have tons of shots from Hakodate to sort through too.
