    Even though I knew just where this was I still had to search for it as these are the masters of hiding while looking at you face to face.
    And this is what makes getting these a little more special.
    These look like the same shots but they all are different.

    Very strange looking bird but also 10/10 on the "Cute" scale. Well spotted. It's a fact that I've probably seen these guys on a number of occasions without recognising them.
    The images all look much the same Ralph, I'm not seeing any differences. Am I missing something?

      It's mainly in the eyes slight but they are different.

    good to see these. sometimes very hard to spot.
    this could well be sitting on a nest too, usually build a poor nest, so this may be it

    Nice pictures of a tree, where's the bird? No, just kidding, very well spotted I'm sure they're very easy to miss. That bird has eyebrows a bit like a one-time UK labour politician Dennis Healey.

      I think there might be a reason for the eyebrow to be that way but I couldn't tell you what it is or it would be a lie.

      Thanks for that and these really are so hard to find even knowing where they are.

    I think or I am wondering if your comment Stephen (Avkomp) that it never happened without pictures means you needed proof of the young ones.
    So I hunted and in the end I did find them but I had to download it from my saved photo that I have posted.
    But this is last years young one though in this nest there are 2 though I don't think you can see the 2nd one in this shot.

      didnt happen without pix is something we say around here. doesnt mean you arent believed or anything. just that we want to see the pix.
      is jokingly said to each other.
      you have pix so it did happen............ good work
