Siberian Jay encounter
3:rd of January 2009
After a good walk, some work and effort, a fire is burning, great-tasting sausages are being grilled and birds are turning up one by one around us. First out is a Black Woodpecker male, turning to the fat put up in a basket on a tree trunk. Normally Great-spotted and Grey-headed Woodpeckers feed on that, but a Blackie!!! I´ve heard about it happen before but never seen it with my own eyes in my entire life.
A good, lively, little bunch of Coal–, Willow– and Crested Tits are coming real close and finally... what we all where waiting fore... a family group of 4 Siberian Jays. These charming, reddish little fellows really know how to light up a winter´s day.
My oldest son Leon took the picture.
