[edit] Overview

Trondheim is a university city in central Norway, within the Trondheim Fjord. As with virtually all cities in Norway, Trondheim is surrounded by hills, forests, waterways and farmland. There are also many parks and gardens and thus a number of places of interest for visiting birders. Trondheim also has an active ornithological society.

[edit] Notable Species

Spotted Nutcrackers (Siberian race) can readily be found in pine cone season (late July through September most years) in a number of parks and cemeteries. Trondheim also has possibly the world's northernmost breeding population of Rooks, mostly on the east side of the city, boldly strutting about in the parks.

Winter visitors include large flocks of Bohemian Waxwings (look for them in berry bushes and Rowan trees), Crossbills (Parrot, Red, and occasionally irruptions of Double-barred - look for them in the Botanical Gardens at Ringve), and some Winters flocks of Long-Tailed Tits.

[edit] Rarities

Includes Pink-footed Geese (for flocks in the tens of thousands, drive further east along the fjord to Levanger in the Spring and Fall migrations), also occasionally other geese such as Tundra Bean, various ducks including Mandarin, Water Rail, Grey Wagtail (one pair breeds regularly near the upper falls dam on the river) ...
