    A question for any bird-watchers

    Hi all,

    I have a passing interest in bird watching, and yesterday I saw a pair of birds with odd coloured plumage. At first I thought they were robbins, but they had the size and shape of a collared dove. Looking online at the RSPB bird identifier the closest thing I can find is a Turtle Dove, but the website says they only summer in the UK

    Does anyone have any expertise on identifying our feathered friends?

    I'm also pretty sure I saw a Golden Oriole one day when I was at work, but that's another story

    I agree Charlie, from the description given, it fits the bill, (Pardon the pun) well.

    Nice to see there are some Hornythologists on the forum

    Looking it up it they might well have been Jays, I only got a brief look at them as I drove past the small tree they were perched on.

    Thanks for the input

    Maybe a timely reminder considering your weather over the next week to put some food out for our feathered friends!

    Too late Newforest, have several in trees, and around the garden. Trouble is, the birds don't seem to want to fly in the fog. That's why I have shifted the feeders from around the garden into the trees.

    I saw a bird I had never seen in my garden the other day, a quick look in my "Playboy",( sorry,wrong bird book,) Bird Identification book, showed it to be a Dunnock.
