Reed Bunting

The Reed Bunting (Emberiza schoeniclus)

I found these two males on seed feeders in the Parkland. 
Unfortunately they are not in their best plumage as yet.

  1. No doubt they'll soon be 'showing' at their very best Roy...[;o)

  2. Hello Roy,
    I never really met this bird, maybe one day!
    Very nice shot!

    Bye

  3. Great to see Roy, who puts the food out?
    ( the Flowering Larch I found at the park is a Japanese Larch, photos here. )http://huntingtrees.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/larch.html

    1. The food is put out by the Parkland maintenance staff Amanda.

  5. I've been watching Reed Buntings many times over the past year, but I've never seen one on a feeder. Terrific photos of them, Roy.
