  1. Crested tit

    Crested tit

    They are very busy now. Yesterday, I saw one of a pair collecting nesting material.
  2. Common firecrest

    Common firecrest

    Looking up. Yesterdays upload of a firecrest showed this bird on top of a twig, similar to the one on its right side. Now can you imagine, how rare/difficult it is, to capture it on top of one of those tiny twigs. It was a day with three fcs, foraging in the vegetation next to me.

    Common firecrest

    It took a long time until I got this compo (no feeder)/on top of a single twig.
  4. Common chiffchaff

    Common chiffchaff

    Please excuse me Camargue birder but I really want to show this compo.
  6. Common firecrest

    Common firecrest

    Pretty swift birds.
  7. Dunnock


    It is by far the most widespread member of the accentor family; most other accentors are limited to mountain habitats. Other common names of the dunnock include: hedge accentor, hedge sparrow or hedge warbler (wiki).
  8. Robin


    Guess the robin liked me. It perched very close to me.
  9. Brambling


    Prob. my last brambling this season. Most siskins have already left Munich.

    SF - Different decorating ideas 🤣

    One Great tit (one of a pair) brought in nesting material and one nutty (one of a pair) threw it out. The Great tits were not amused. Their dispute continued today but they were afraid of the nuthatch beaks. Please let me know if it does not meet the gallery guidelines.
  11. Male bullfinch

    Male bullfinch

    in beautiful light. Yesterday, did I see three times a common snipe/a great snipe in flight here in Munich within two hours at different places at the Waldfriedhof cemetery. Not sure about the ID. Common snipe is more likely but I believe the bills I saw were shorter. No clue but waders on...
  12. Common firecrest

    Common firecrest

    Looking for insects in evergreen shrubs. Some stay here over winter !!
  13. Dunnock


    In the past did it leave, after approx. two weeks, when it did not find a breeding partner.
  14. Dunnock


    Looking for bird seeds.
  15. Eurasian siskin

    Eurasian siskin

    Competition over vital resources.

    A pretty warm day and my first dunnock this year.

    Clever tit. 🤣🤣 Netted fat balls were on offer. Bird food is expensive these days. Another good thing is that you can tie them at the feeder. Jays are clever and strong.
  18. Brambling


    I recently read a report that it is difficult for wildlife photographers in the Camargue or in the Grenoble area to spot bramblings. If you live there, please do not become desperate. You have already access to incredibly beautiful species. 😁😉👍Sorry b....
  19. Hawfinch


    They do not come down in November when you are there. Different story in March.
  20. New goshawk

    New goshawk

    Arrived and left within seconds. Exactly this is the reason why I believe its a new one. The other raptors are "used" to humans.
  21. Short-toed treecreeper

    Short-toed treecreeper

    aka groundcreeper. I believe stc.
  22. GTs brawl

    GTs brawl

    Two's company, three's a crowd. They had a serious dispute, fights included. My only "sharp" shot.

    Sorry bievre but a side view picture is a must-see. 🤣😉
  24. Brambling


    For a birder living in the Département Isère/Camargue and for everybody else in bf.
  25. Arvicolinae


    No idea, maybe a bank vole. If ID is correct -danger- 😡☠️🏥 (Orthohantavirus).
