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. :)

Hey guys, come down, please! They didn´t. :(
I finally spotted a small group of Bohemian waxwings high up in a treetop. They all sat in the still sunny parts of the tree. In a way I was happy because last year I never saw them in sunshine. Only got grey birds on a rainy day. Not fun as this bird needs sunshine to shine. :)

The title says a few! Yes, outside my window was 3 bullfinches, At the feeder was only three Blyúe tits that I could see. And the poor Goldeneye was alone in the entire lake that I could see. :(
Guess I will not be birding for a while. But luckily I have birds from Scotland, Morocco and Honoulu that I can post. I´ll still be around the birding blogs. :)

In autumn it is sometimes good to live on the third floor.  With trees outside.  Currently there are a lot of Fieldfares ravaging the treetops and grass on the ground. And a Blackbird or two.

    It was a little too dark to get good shots when I came across this flock of birds. It was at least a hundred but this was the only good shots I got. They are fun to watch as they move quickly and every now and then all of then flies up and into a nearby tree and then back down again.

About Eurasian Jay on wiki

Someone said that this member of the crow family is the one that the most common one. I don´t know about that because I rarely see it. But this day, for the first time, I saw several of them. Think it was 5. Mostly it is in the forest and it is said to be shy. And this is the first time I saw one on the ground and got some descent shots of it.
