I went to the forest feeder and the lake yesterday. At the feeder I noticed great spotted woodpecker, nuthatcher and a female Eurasian Siskin. At the lake most ice was now gone and replaced with graylag goose and lots of coots. Spring IS here!

This is two different birds and now I wonder what happened, did they run out of food sources? Or jsut want to find a mate? 
In my town they have taken down a lot of trees. Maybe too many? The one on the pole seem to be a male, unsure about the one on the lamp as I can´t see the neck.

I have been waiting for a long time to see the Bullfinches in snow. Now I finally got it. Mostly the snow falls of the branches but this time it was wet and stayed on. 
And, having a little fun creating a sketch out of one of the images using CS5 to do it.

Just for a little while. As soon as you pull the trigger the bird is on the other side of the treetrunk.

This was a rare day this winter. A little snow and sunshine. Almost thought I was in a different country. 
As it has been a snow free and rather warm winter not many birds has been to the feeder at the forest edge. But these are almost always there every time I pay a visit. I think the Nuthatch is preparing for a dive :)
