A group of bullfinches has been outside my balcony now and then for a couple of days. They stays mostly in the top of a cherry tree, eating buds I think. It is a nice thing to study them, they are really great athletes.

A very nice member of the gull family. It looks rather dangerous having the nest on cliffs like that. But they manage. Love the last shot with the preening chick and sleeping parent. Images from my visit to the island last summer.

Can you see me?

This bird is always a pleasure to see in the forest. And to watch it running up the tree trunks.  Then flying down to the base of another and running up again. :)

Wikipedia has a large article about the Puffin for those of you whou have time to read it. Quite interesting.
