The blues, as in, the two blue rock thrushes currently hanging out near the house. I took these shots yesterday around dawn, so the colour may be hard to see, but I believe this is a male and a female blue rock thrush. They were up and about early, hanging out on the roof of the house next door, watching over the area around our house and, no doubt, keeping an eye out for breakfast.
I had another surprise the other day when a hoopoe flew past the house. I’ve only ever seen them up in the hills before, around the area of Micro Sotiris, to be exact, and it was the first time I’ve seen one in the village. It didn’t stop, so I was unable to get a photo for you. The same thing happened with a raven yesterday when one came closer than I’ve seen them before. Again, no photo, but at least I was able to capture the blues.
