Blåmes - Parus caeruleus - Blue tit

Checking the surrounding, is it safe? Somebody watching? Yea, a woman, but she does not count.

Did I store any food here?

I save it for later.

The color is pretty strong so this is probably a male. I assumed that he was hiding food for bad times in the tree.

Well....I DID see them

The shots in this post are as lousy as it can be. But I did see the bird. And I know what it is. So, I post it anyway. Just to remember. And there are always others that has better material to find while searching for it.

Birds this week

Havsörn - Sea Eagle. NF Photo 101116
This was the closest I ever managed to come to one of them. But I still don´t have a ground shot. They left because there was nothing more to eat but bare bones. Yes, I checked when they were gone.

Turkduva - Streptopelia decaocto - Eurasian Collared Dove.  NF Photo 101119
I was out for a walk the other day. Close to home I spotted this dove sitting on the antenna. It was nice because it is the first time I have seen it in Sweden. So now I have 145 species for Sweden on my blog. And a total of 174 for Europe.  :)
Domherre - Bullfinch

These bullfinches visited my balcony for the first time this season. I can see 5 on the flowerbox and two males in the trees behind it. This is also unusually early.

White Stork on wiki

The white Stork was earlier a common spieces in southern Sweden. But then it dissapeared for different reasons. Now it is reintroduced. They breed them and let the birds free when it is appropriate. And now we have a small population of them in the southern part of Sweden.
