No Ann, it was actually early afternoon. This particular Bluey had a very yellow face - had never seen that before in an adult bird.

He is a very well dressed little Bluey Sylvia. Detail is great and his plumage is immaculate.

It's another lovely capture Sylvia - very colourful - I have seen the yellow look around the face before - at the time I thought it was pollen from getting insects in the Pussy Willows !

They are so common, so often posted on this side - but I still think each of the pics is a beauty in itself.
So well done with this one Sylvia, a lovely little proud guy!

He seems to be very neat and tidy - as though he's just had a haircut Wink. Lovely capture.
