Holt - Common Crossbills

 More opportunities arose for Common Crossbills! One or two were occasionally tagging along with the Parrots but usually they kept to their own company. Here's a drinking (and photo) opportunity?


But love was in the air too!



Go on.... you know you want to?


Mmmmm.....

Once they had stopping playing around, thirst needed quenching.....









Using their bill to scoop up some water....


With reflections now possible.....








Immature male.




Males getting more brightly coloured!


No enhancement here and sunglasses at the ready!






Not an easy image - male and female side by side and both managing to stay in focus!


I might even have another go at these?
