I do not have the patience to be a bird photographer. But I wanted to participate in the shoot, so here is my humble offering. By the way, I have loved all the great submissions this week. There is a lot of talent in this group. I think I'll stick with kids, flowers, and landscapes. I'll just enjoy all your bird photos.

The robins have returned.

There is always a lot of bird drama with the magpies that hang around. Here six of them were ganging up on a hawk in our tree. I tried to get closer, but they all flew off.

Interesting Hawk picture Terri.

I was passing the canal earlier this morning so stopped to see what might be around. Answer - swans! This pair was going through all their loving rituals.

Such symmetry and contrast!

Thanks Andy. I was lucky - all this was going on just a few feet away. I had never seen the bubble-blowing before. I have lots more of them "dancing" together.

Based on that kinda *C*urved tail on the hawk, I'd guess that it might be a young*C*ooper's? *S*harp-shinned hawks have a *S*traighter tail although it is usually difficult to distinguish between the two - especially at distance.

Thank you my friends for participating this week.

Someone got an idea for the oncoming CS?
Otherwise I'll start one in the afternoon.

Kind regards
Klaus
