These gorgeous birds were spotted by a friend in their vineyard recently…not these 2, the photo is courtesy of Google, but a pair just like them.
Have you seen some interesting birds in Bagni di Lucca or nearby? If so, send me photos and I will put them on the blog. It would be fun to see which birds we have here.
I have heard woodpeckers, but I don’t see them. We have swallows and swifts on the river, but they are a bit difficult to capture on film.
Send any photos to email@example.com.
Fantastic photo of a couple of beautiful birds.
They are gorgeous. I hope I see them somewhere.
Such lovely colorful birds!
I hear lots of birds around here, but I don’t see many.
I hear many as well, but don’t see them. I do enjoy watching the ducks and the gulls in the river. Not too exotic, but fun to see.
There are also herons on the river sometimes.
Wow … such beauty. I would have guess Australian over Bagni. 😉 … What kind are they?
They do look a bit like our colourful birds. They are bee eaters.
I can offer you golden orioles, green woodpeckers (interestingly, they are most often seen on the grass rooting for insects rather than up trees being proper woodpeckers), buzzards (we found a drowned young one in our pool one morning – didn’t look where he was diving!) plenty of pied wagtails, jackdaws, blackcaps and assorted ellbeebees (l b b – little brown bird).
Do you have photos? Perhaps not of the dead one.
