Eurasian Jay, a rare visitor to the Forest feeder. 
First time it stayed long enough to get a shot. With a glimpse of sunlight and a camera willing to behave! 


A Coal tit showing of it´s little crest.


Marsh tit adn Blue tit sharing branch. 

What are YOU looking at? It is mine!  A mouthful for the nuthatch. 

Only birds today. To bad I did not get a Bullfinch this week. It´s red chest would be nice christmas colors.

I hope everyone has enyojed a fine Christmas despite of the pandemic. I spent it alone but had contace with family and friends online. My Christmas Eve was great. We had nice frost and sunshine. I spent the day out "hunting" deers on halffrozen land and photographed frozen ice needles. 
But, that will be for another post. 

Take care everyone! We have past winter solstice and are heading towards lighter days.

A-corns can be very beautiful inside. And this is one of them. As you can see I painted a tree on rhe left one. The right one is what it looked like natuarally. 

Merry christmas everyone.

A rainy day

Great-spotted woodpecker, male and a Blue tit


Great-spotted woodpecker, female. The patch on her neck is white, not red. 


Marsh tit - Entita

Eurasian Treecreeper

This was a rainy and very dark day. So it was hard to get shots at all. I hardly saw them in the camera. 
It was nice to see the female woodpecker. Most of the times it is only the males with the red neck patch that shows up. 
The Blue and Marsh tits are mostly seen at the feeder but this time I also saw one treecreeper. I was lucky to get a shot of it. They usually hide themselves behind the tree trunk. Especially at the same moment you press the button. ūüėĀ

Take care everyone. The C is still on the move and in Sweden they have raised the restrictions. To try to keep a low spread during Christmas and New Year.

Boda Kvarn

This is Boda Kvarn, an old mill about 20km from my town. Kvarn means mill in English. This place is now a kind of museum. A group of people takes care of it and closes and opens the dam when needed. Right now it is rather much water as it has rained a lot. This is also the place where there used to be Dippers in wintertime. There was one a few weeks ago but it seem to have left. They like colder weather and it is unusually warm this winter. I hope it comes back!

Saturdays critters a grey day

Kinglet - Kungsfågel
I was walking through the forest when I noticed movement in the branches. A quick glance and camera up. Just pulled the trigger and hoped for the best. It was so dark I hardly saw it. So, I was surprised to see this shot on my computer. Sometimes if feels great to be lucky. I got one more shot but that is just the tail. ūüėĄ

This Red squirrel seem to be a regular guest at the bird feeder. For a moment the sun shine through and lit it up. 


This little one lives 2 blocks from my home. I walk this way now and then. This was a rainy day and this little friend was obviously bored. Usually it is somewhere in the garden but this time it was just standing there watching. 


We had a little snow one day dusting the field making it striped. The fallow deer bucks was grazing on the slope. Guess they did not like to go down as it was really muddy. I stayed put myself on the road.

In the trees

 Click image to enlarge!
Hard to see the bird, but you can see it´s footprint on my car. 


The first Bullfinches has visited the tree outside my balcony.
They feed on the buds. 


Can you see it? The little blue tit?  This is the tree behind the one with the bullfinches.

A closeup on the Blue tit. 


I am happy about those trees outside my balcony. I live on the third floor. They are now so tall they give some shadow on my balcony that tends to be too hot at times. And sometimes give photo opportunity´s at sunset, with beams throw the leaves. 
In winter they become my "bird-feeder". So, I always keep an eye on those trees.
