Possibly the best known of the North American spotted brown thrushes and the only one that commonly nests in parks and gardens, the 8-inch-long wood thrush is noted for its incredibly musical song, a flutelike ee-oh-lay. The wood thrush is known by several other names, including bellbird, in reference to its clarionlike song.

Alcedo athis: Kingfisher: It snaps up one of the tiny silvery fish near the bottom of the pristine lake. These amazing pictures were taken at a small, pristine river in Land Hessen, central Germany. They show the bird returning to the water several times, until he had his fill. Kingfishers can capture 80 small fish, such as perch or sticklebacks, over the course of a day. From DailyMail UK


I loved ducks when I was little, my grandmother had several but one in particular became her beloved one because he would follow her every where.


Wren. The wren is a tiny brown bird, although it is heavier, less slim, than the even smaller goldcrest. It is dumpy, almost rounded, with a fine bill, quite long legs and toes, very short round wings and a short, narrow tail which is sometimes cocked up vertically. For such a small bird it has a remarkably loud voice. It is the commonest UK breeding bird, although it suffers declines during prolonged, severely cold winters.
