Listed here are some of the birds seen in Perthshire, not just by me but other people I know. It started as just a simple list but I decided to expand it so that when clicked, each bird comes up in a small window where you can hear it's song. Flight is a god-given gift and I often wonder whether birds are incarnations of great spirits that enjoy the fruits of the earth but have a type of freedom that we can only dream about. Most are aloof and elusive, like the heron that is particularly hard to get anywhere near. Others are cautiously indifferent to us such as the pied wagtail and the robin. I love them all and do what I can for them during the harsh Winter months. Shelley, my wife, found this interesting list of "groups" of bird types so I'm sharing that with you here. This also opens in a pop up window.
My undying thanks to the RSPB for their wonderful website and all the exhaustive work they do for the protection of birds.
