Weekend with my feathered friends
Last weekend we have sunny Saturday and cloudy Sunday. Easy to find out which photos are made when. There is another difference, I used two cameras and I am not sure if this would be noticeable. Not that it matters as I am not going into big details. I am still a beginner and learn by practice.
My routine hasn't changed and some good hour and a half we spent walking in the park with the dog. Now every tree and shrub is covered with its spring blossoms.
It seems the birds are singing louder. I am still discovering something new each day. Like, how beautiful the starling sings. Starlings like one particular shrub and I see them there each time. When the singer stands still and there are no twigs in front, I don't waste precious time and begin snapping as many photos as I can.
But I also stayed for a little while and just listened to the little guy.
The white dots on its feathers look like stars and hence its name. The metalic green and violet gleam add extra cosmic feeling.
The Great tits were close this time and I got better shot of one of them. Always wonder how such a small bird can have so loud voice. They are early singers. In early spring I hear them loud an clear each morning when I go out for work.
On my way back home, jackdaws were gathering almonds. The almond trees were the first to blossom and sadly the following frost hit them. But one of the trees was late and I think this year there will be almonds enough for the birds.
The weather got different plans. Monday turned to be nothing like spring day. It was windy and snowy. Yeah, the spring started with snow!
Now back to my weekend and grey Sunday. I did not expect to see many birds. However, there is hardly a day without spotting at least one woodpecker and so was Sunday. Great spotted woodpecker, rather silent it was. The drumming was quiet and another starling on the same tree was singing.
I kept the images without croppping this time, because they are rather grainy.
Later, when we were home, we got vistor on the balcony. A jackdaw perched on the net that we raised above the railings. The door was shut, the cats were sleeping in another room and the bird curiously looked through the window. Next shots I combined in gif image.
This jackdaw could be one of the regular visitors, who liked the bread crumbs and cat biscuits hubby left outside.
Before leaving, shake....
...turn around and take off.
And that was all from my weekend with the birds. Today it continues to be horrible outside, the wind is howling but it stopped snowing. Birds are hiding this morning, no chirp, no sound except for the wind. On my way to work, I will keep looking for storks, who have arrived from the south.
Till next time! Stay safe and healthy!
