Cuckoo Time

By Lillian  
Just spent a very long day photographing many birds
but mainly the Cuckoo

Finished the day with the Grebes.. very Surprised... have a baby that hatched today
so my time will be at the lakes and the cuckoo for awhile now.
At least until I go back to Croatia

Thank you for your awards and comments on the Kingfisher

Bird photography can be the hardest genre, many call it birds on sticks, they should try it sometime.
My recent visit toHarris poked my interest in birds back to life and I shot many images of specs what should have been birds,

I have nothing bt praise for bird photographers, it tales skill quick reactions and oodles of patience.

Not at all what I imagined a cuckoo looked like!
I used to hear them in Ireland as a child.
