Blackcap & 'Browncap'

Another lovely bird, came along in the birdbath for drinking/bathing, with his mate.
He has a blackcap...that's how his name is: Blackcap (Zwartkop) or (Sylvia atricapilla).

She only does not have a blackcap.
She has a brown one, though she still is named Blackcap.
and not Browncap as you would logical think.

Sometimes things are not logical.

Though I rarely comment, always love your pictures.

The girls and I are bird watchers and you give us a view from a different world! Thanks.

You're right, this is a lovely little bird--I've never seen this kind of bird before.
