First time I have ever seen a crow with a fish. I was taken with surprise and did not know what the catch was until I saw the images on the screen.

I finally got some good photos or our wren here in Sweden. The first images might be an adult bird. The others is clearly a young.  Talk about being well camouflaged. It was really hard to keep track of it. This wren is not as dark as teh one in the states. And the shape of the bill seem to differ a bit.

A nice surprice today. Not often I see the crossbills. And I was lucky to capture both of them.

I have not seen any more activity at that birdhouse so I guess the house was not pleasing. They seem to have choosen an other one.

Water fowl Good and bad

 Sothöna - Fulica atra - Eurasian Coot
The two on the image is not the same family. The Ad probably thought the baby got too close and chased it away. As you can see the Ad bites the baby around the neck. It came out unharmed though. This might be the same Ad individual that robbed the nest of Black-headed gulls two weeks ago. Is it bad behaviour of one individual or is it common among Coots? I have never seen it bfore.

 Rörhöna - Gallinula chloropus - Common Moorhen
 This one never comes close enough for a decent shot. I have only seen one but there is probably two. Have not seen any chicks yet.

Knipa - Bucephala clangula - Common Goldeneye
A beautiful family, isn´t it?

It was kind of fun to catch this bird in the middle of the city of Reykjavik, Iceland. Local birders told me it is Arctic Tern.
