Killybegs is Ireland’s largest fishing port located in the waters of Donegal Bay.
Because of his makings I would call bird number 2 "Rusty".
He has a red breast, a robin??
I am amazed to find a heron near salt water or is it there sweet?
According to David Gascoigne's comment, herons often forage in tidal estuaries.
The bird in the first picture is a Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea). If anyone needs help with the second one, check for a pulse! In answer to S.C. above herons often forage in tidal estuaries.
...a cute unidentified bird.
It’s great to see some of the birds in your area, Bill.

At first glance, I thought the title said "Saturday Oysters".
Hello Bill.Wonderful pictures and great captures of the Heron and my favorite Robin bird!!!Have a lovely weekend!Dimi...
My friend Bill,The first photo has a very deep meaning. And both photos are parts from the nature we all love.Warmest greetings.Yannis Politopoulos
I have a friend in England that has robins in her garden. So, I believe the second bird to be a robin. Enjoyed seeing the grey heron. Happy Saturday!
I think it's a Robin too! We have them here in the winter months! Happy weekend! Beautiful photos...as always!
In North america we also have a robin. The name for our robin is incorrect and you should check the history of the name.
Love both photos!
That's a cute little bird with the red face. It probably is a type of robin.
I too think it's a robin. A lovely little bird!
I have been away from blogging for a while but those are beautiful birds and I LOVE your header- Hi to Shari! Hugs-Diana
Two very different birds, both are special !
A wonderful robin! Have an Happy New Year!
Most of our herons have left for the winter, love to try and get close
I never have any idea about the kinds of birds I see. I know a pigeon and a crow when I see one but that's about it. Cute little fella with the orange on him though.
My post this week has a heron as well. It came to visit us at the float cabin on Powell Lake in British Columbia. It is an occasional visitor, mostly in fall and winter. - Margy
An English Robin. So cute---american robins are all red bellied. Nice Heron tooMB
Hello, the second bird is a European Robin... a resident in my garden in summer! :)
Isn't it one of your robins. They are so different from the North American ones! Love the heron pic!
Hello!I love the robin.Regards
What a lovely bird! The heron, I recognize!Your head is GORGEOUS!!!!!!(ツ) from Cottage Country Ontario , ON, Canada!
The robin seems feisty!
Cool captures of the birds!
So...the second one is a robin? I can see that though it's very different from ours here. I wonder if their songs are similar. Ours can be very melodic.
They're being very observant.
Nice shots! The heron looks so independent out there.
Love the lookout heron Bill, but the wee robin is adorable ✨
Yep, heron. One of my favorite subjects.
Lovely photos! Did you see the photos of the crowds gathered to see the European robin that landed un Beijing?
Your photos are lovely. I wish you both a nice week.
I guess somebody needs to check my pulse (per David’s comment) because I didn’t know that bird . A robin I guess, from other (more helpful) comments. Love the heron surveying the kingdom. They really are the epitome of patience.
It does look like a robin....different from the robins in Canada. Also chubbier lol
Hello, I love the heron but the Eurasian Robin is one of my favorites. They are beautiful birds. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. I've been away and now catching up with my comments and blog visits. I appreciate your comment and visit to my blog. Have a happy day and week ahead.
Love both of these photographs... especially the robin :)All the best Jan
