    Hello all, Today I was the lucky one who was able to enter the living room of the house where the Collared flycatcher is and I understand perfectly well that the family that lives there prefers that people cant know where the bird is, since it is observed exactly from the window of the living...

    By the way, very early in the morning there was an small flock of 6 Rock sparrow at Passatge 5 on the road to the cap de ses Salines. I guess to see them it is better to go very early, later with the cars and noises they go further inside the fields, away from the road.

    Today at the cap de ses Salines, i found this Audouin gull, very, very confident, so i could read the numbers in its metal ring, because she (I guess she is a female, because it was with the her couple and was sensibly smaller) has lost the long distance read-rinng. This year, this gull will...

    Hello, Yes, it is a P. carbo sinensis, but as far as I know, p.c. sinensis is the commom and normal in the Mediterranean. Of course during the winter there are a lot of P. carbo carbo from the Atlantic and the north, to stay winter in Mallorca, but sinensis is not scarce or rare.

    Hello Håkan, it would be the first time ever of a nuthatch in Balearic islands, probably it was a Great tit, remember than in the Balearics there is a subscpecie Parus major mallorcae, and the sings, reklams and sounds they do arent the same as others in the continent. Regards

    I agree with Biel, for me the birds are: female Stonechat and Oystercatcher, but if i had to say a "possible" breeder in Mallorca the yellowhammer woudnt be in the first 100 birds i would say, for sure. Regards

    On Saturday at the Son Bosc Depuradora (Albufera), I saw a dark duck that didn't look like a tufted pochard to me, and that at first I thought was like a Greater scaup, although some things didn't fit with it (all my pictures were so far away and almost sunset, so bad to identify a group so much...

    The access to Ternelles valley is the biggest scandal and the biggest shame of Mallorca in the last 30 years. The path and the pass thru the valley is absolutely public and it should be free, but one of the richest families in Spain (maybe the richest of all) has it closed, by the face, with the...
