Not a drive-in restaurant but a fly-in restaurant.
In terms of visits, a five star Michelin restaurant worth.
From my parents’ garden – a very large old overgrown garden.
Perfect for small wild birds, which especially my mother’s huge passion.
The inspiration comes from “Restlessjo” and her “Monday walk” themes.
A small walk just outside the house of my old parents.
At the risk of meeting perhaps 20 different species of small birds.
In addition, pheasants, ducks, geese, oystercatchers, jays, lapwings and more.
Not to forget, hedgehogs, deer and occasionally a fox too.
The hedge-sparrow very often guest with their nests just nearby.
Yellow-hammer do enjoy the dinnerparties along with the pheasants, a very friendly bird..
The wagtail examines the lawn thoroughly for insects.
Common-pheasant, according to himself the king of the garden and not common at all.
The bird doesn’t bother knocking on the pane of the “ceiling to floor window”.
Just to tell he has arrived with all his many wives.
If the cats in the house looking out the window, so they get a few straight “words” too.
The great spotted woodpeckers are very often guests and learn their kids where to eat.
What fantastic photos – you are so lucky to have such birds in your backyard. Thanks for sharing them.
Fabulous! 🙂 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing this, Drake. I feel privileged. I’ve never seen a yellow hammer- isn’t he gorgeous? It’s nice that your Mum has such a great wild space to indulge her passion.

happy monday! nice pics! keep going Drake!
Thanks a lot, really do appreciate… 🙂
Hej Drake! Fantastiske flotte billeder, jeg er meget misundelig 🙂 Gulspurvens karakteristiske sang får mig altid til at tænke på varme solbeskinnede sommerdage.
Fabulous “non mundane” images! They are extraordinary….
Wonderful pictures, a fantastic “reportage” of the idyllic atmosphere in your parents’ garden! I love little birds too. Thanks for sharing dear friend. 🙂
I can understand your Mom. This is a perfect place and not only for birds. Beautiful bird portraits, Drake.
Beautiful birds, well done!
You have a lot of “winged” friends – fabulous captures. I am heading out on the Vancouver Seawall to meet up with my seagull friends. I think I’m beginning to understand their language!!!
Very Lovely post!
Love the bird fast-food court. 🙂 That hedge sparrow looks very well fed indeed. Your bird photos are great, and I want to go walking across those lush green fields.
