Grågås - Greylag goose
On my walk today I heard the cry of geeze. So I thought I continue to the next lake where they use to breed. And I saw them. There were two of them, greylag goose,  far out on the ice. I say, welcome to Sweden!
Trädkrypare - Certhia familiaris - CommonTree creeper
Today I spotted another treecreeper. But there are no way to know if it is the same as the other day or if it is onther one. At least this time I saw the head. :)

Another bird I have not seen all winter is the gråsiska - Carduelis flammea  - Common Redpoll. But it came today.

  2. Lovely shot of the Treecreeper; a difficult bird to capture. And I love that last shot of the Redpoll.

  8. Great birds, I just love the cute Redpoll. The treecreeper is a great sighitng, they kind of blend in well with the trees.

  9. I love the Redpolls. The one in the last photo almost looks like an Arctic Redpoll - it's so light - although the bill is a little large for that. Nice post!

  10. Great post with lovely captures of birds! Amazing sighting and photo of the Treecreeper. He's pretty well camouflaged on the tree bark.
