Fauvette à tête noire

Sylvia atricapilla
Passeriformes - Sylviidae

Un grand nombre de ces passereaux assez ternes vivent dans le jardin; ils visitent tous les buissons, des Forsythias aux figuiers en passant par les Mahonias.

Monsieur, dans un chêne rouge américain:

Eurasian blackcap,
 Many of these birds live in my garden and they inspect all the bushes from Forsythias and fig trees to the Mahonias.

Madame, dans un Forsythia le lendemain:

Les femelles chantent aussi mais bien plus doucement que les mâles et avec des notes bien moins complexes:

Females do sing too but much more lightly than males and the song is not as complex:

I saw one out walking the other day, but I only carry the small camera with me when walking any distance, the long lens feels too clumsy by the time I have done 10kms! Fabulous photos and love the shots against the forsythia which is looking tremendous at the moment. I hope that you are managing, wish I could come in and help. Take care and big hugs Diane

J'aime beaucoup ces petites fauvettes qui égaient le jardin toute l'année. Le mâle est un bon chanteur, au printemps c'est vraiment agréable à entendre!
Et puis ils sont amusants à regarder gober divers fruits parfois trop gros pour leur gosier!
Prends ton temps , Nouschka, rien ne presse!
Belle fin de semaine à toi!

Hi Noushka, Super images of the Black Cap, never seem to be able to get that close to them myself. The female is gorgeous against the yellow background. Regards John

Unas aves preciosas. Parecen que estén posando para ti, y debe ser una maravilla poder disfrutarlas en directo, observando sus movimientos y escuchando sus trinos.

Magnifiques portraits de Monsieur et Madame ... ils sont vifs et querelleurs, dans le jardin ils ont souvent le dessus
les écouter chanter est un vrai bonheur

Je t'envoie tout plein de pensées du coeur et les Waps de grosses léchouilles.

Our arrivals are still hanging around high in the trees, so difficult to get good shots as yet.

Dearest Noushka,
Usually it's the male bird that is stealing the show but here the colors of the forsythia blooms did complement her so very well; she looked stunning!
Sending you hugs and blessings and I'm now over half way through the scanning of all our photo albums. Not quitting until I'm done; it is raining and cool... so this is not bad.

Fabrice a dit…

Hello maitre Noushka,
C'est la première année qu'en j'en identifie, en fait c'est plutôt rare dans nos jardins ici, elles sont plutôt dans les haies, mais elles ont un superbe chant.

Roos a dit…

Love these birds Noushka, to hear the male sing its song is Always such a joy. Your photos are stunning as Always.

Antonio Puig Garcias a dit…

David Gascoigne a dit…

The forsythia in our garden is coming into bloom, Noushka, but I am sure we won't be seeing any Blackcaps in it!

eileeninmd a dit…

Hello, Noushka, I love these cute Blackcap birds. Congrats on selling your place, I know you will be very busy with the move. I wish you all the best and hope all goes smoothly. Happy Sunday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Fundy Blue a dit…

The blackcaps are beautiful, especially the female against the vibrant yellow forsythia. Love the textures in the last photo! I see from the comment above, that you have sold your place, Noushka. Congrats! I'm sure this is all really hard. Thank you for your generosity in taking time to share these lovely photos with us during such a busy time! Hugs to you!
