Well, all these birds over here un the USA are new to me, although I did see some of them about 3 years ago and so they become something special, but for my favourite bird I'd probably pick the Eurasian Lapwing. Could change my mind tomorrow, though
Yes, thoroughly pleased with this one - the female is quite a smart bird, too, neater. Now all that's over and I'm back home, I still prefer the, often less colourful, European birds I've known so long. Did get a last minute shot of the only hummingbird they get that far north. It never stops astouding me. I'll put it up when I get sorted out here.
