waxwings returned

With waxwings I met quite late. In the past, I not dealt with bird watching, and this bird you can see in the winter and not every year. It just so happens that a couple of years there They would appear with us. As soon as I tried to photograph them. This was not always possible. Sometimes their stay was very short and it was hard to get close to the desired distance. Now we have snow and cold days. Waxwings saw on the old high lime tree next to the garden with viburnum shrubs and wild rose that took a lot of fruit. During the first two days ate fruit viburnum, then rose fruits. When the fruit ran out, the waxwings flew away after 4 days stay. Take a good photo is not easy. Did not do special preparation, atylko I used a tripod. Pododa also not conducive to cloudy, from time to time, it was snowing. Here are the pictures.

such a little bird

I visited the family home. The building has been recently renovated. New roofing and porch. Early in the morning I noticed on the fence the black redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros), who was watching me. I realized that it is near the nest. After a brief observation I saw it in the slot of a new roof with gutter. For three days I watched the black redstart nearby hunts for insects and brings them to the chicks. I noticed that every time cleans manure from the slot. This bird gives the impression of a cheerful still crouching. I took a few photos that I put below.

patient parents

The workers during the renovation of a historic wooden villa discovered a bird’s nest. He was in the 4 eggs. They could not identify the species of birds. To paint the place where there were a nest moved them close, and after completion of the work put again on the same spot. Already the next day noticed that birds do not nest abandoned and the next day were already chicks. According to reports from workers I guessed that this is the spotted flycatcher. The next day I went to the balcony, which was located nearby and I made some pictures. The birds were quite cautious and I tried not to disturb them in feeding the young.

about tits

When it comes time for ripening sunflowers on my plot, it appears tits. They can ripen before deprive him of all the sunflower seeds. This happens almost the same frosts. I consecrate to them most of my sunflowers. First come marsh tits (Poecile palustris) who are the most courageous. Blue tits (Cyanistes caeruleus) and great tits (Parus major) are much more cautious. Also willing are other birds. Sparrows in droves attack on sunflowers. Less often they arrive and it was not long greenfinches in large flocks. The most interesting is the nuthatch, for which sunflowers are a delicacy and is so aggressive that drives away other gości. Hi also best able to choose at a time when few seeds.

Who does not wait for spring?

Who does not wait for spring? Around since early May, most of the trees to the green, and some were covered with flowers. They bloom one after the other fruit trees in a forest whose thriving black cherry scent, bloom wild cherries and pears. Lots of birds return from warmer countries. In the evenings, you can hear nightingales and thrushes concert. Very pleasant to take a walk when the weather is conducive.
Here you can listen to the singing of a blackbird and the nightingale.
