A few spring arrivals

 Click image to enlarge!
The first pair of Smew has arrived to a lake 30 km from me.
A favorite I rarely see closeup. 

Common goldeneye
A beautiful duck and quite common where I live, so far!

White tailed sea eagle. We have a few of them in my area. But I only see them, maybe, once a month.

European green woodpecker - Gröngöling
I see it sometimes but it is not common. A very colorful woodpecker when you see it flying.

  1. Hello,

    What a wonderful variety of birds, from the pretty Smews, Goldeneye and the White-tailed Eagle. The European Green Woodpecker is great too. I would be thrilled to see all of these birds. Great photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post.! Take care, have a happy weekend! PS, thank you for the comment on my post.

  2. I have seen but one Smew in my life, an immature male, and one White-tailed Eagle so high in the sky one could barely recognize it, so I would have been thrilled with these two sightings.

  3. Our birds are on the move, as well.

  4. Lappfiskand (Smew) har jeg aldri sett. Så fin hakkespett!

  5. The Sea Eagle is beautiful in flight and I love all the different woodpeckers in the world! Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Fascinating to see the bird life in so many environments like yours and the others who collect such great photos.

  8. A nice variety of birds.

    All the best Jan
