A collage made of pictures of birds either seen in our garden or from our garden in the North-East of England. A pair of mourning doves nests in a tree outside our garden every year and the seagull perches on the roof of the house opposite and thinks that he rules the street. The starling was a total surprise. I did not see it as I was taking a picture of the pansies and it did not see me. It must have landed just as I was focusing the camera. The baby thrush fell out of its nest and fortunately landed among the budding hyacinths and not on the patio. All frames taken with my Canon PowerShot S3 IS camera in Auto mode, except for the baby thrush, for which I used my Canon PowerShot A3100 IS camera in Macro mode.
