What I love about this site is the fact I can watch birds from all over the world.
I know it is common to you but this is a rare & exotic beauty here in europe.
Occasionaly they get blown accross the atlantic & land on our shores in a sad & dishevelled state.
Beautiful bird.

I have 150 + books on birds alone here in my personal library. One of them is my absolute favorite, as it was purchased in London by a now-deceased friend of mine. It's the COLLINS POCKET GUIDE TO the BIRDS OF BRITAIN AND EUROPE, with NORTH AFRICA & THE MIDDLE EAST, by Hermann Heinzel, Richard Fitter, and John Parslow. I love this book and keep it handy for references to the shots I see online of European/African/Middle Eastern bird species. :)
