  1. Juvenile black grouse

    Juvenile black grouse

    While walking through a relatively quieter part of Bymarka, suddenly 4-5 grouses started flying at every direction (one adult and several chicks). They were very well camouflaged, which was apparent as I was trying to photograph this one which was sitting on a nearby tree and another 3 or 4...

    Question for the wiser folks: why is there two species names when I look for greater whitethroat scientific name?

    Patrick - the grouse

    Finally a perfect sunny weekend in Trondheim and everyone's out to the lakes, beaches or the mountains. We saw this male hazel grouse crossing a path in the forest and stopped to take photos. But the grouse kept circling us and came a little bit closer every time. After 15 minutes or so, we...

    Bathing bird pics are always worth a chuckle, even if they're bathing in an ice water puddle.

    Eurasian Oystercatcher

    Oystercatchers are one of the first birds to be seen on the shores at the beginning of spring migration at Trondheim, Norway. Doc Duck and I went to look for them on Sunday, no luck. After several kilometers of hike along the fjord, I finally found a group of about 15 today. I tried to crawl up...

    New lifer - Hazel grouse

    After literally combing through several kilometers of the forest, I stopped to check a call of a great tit. After few minutes I realized that it was flying around something that looked like a wasp's nest. I zoomed in with the camera and found this well camouflaged Hazel grouse sitting still on...

    Eurasian Tree Sparrow

    As I was walking through the cemetery looking for birds, I suddenly heard loud noises coming from a few pine trees in the corner with sunlight. Several Eurasian tree sparrows were doing what it seemed like territorial songs and fighting over the rights for the trees. This particular one seemed...

    Based on the local listings, the goldfinches were back at Ringve botanical garden for less than a week in January. I was lucky enough to stumble upon them on a relatively brighter day.
