After what I consider to be good blog posts I am always hesitant to come with a new post that is just worse pictures of the same birds but when there is nothing else to write about then that’s how it has to be. I can also come with some corrections to information I gave in my last post. Regarding the Hawk Owls the apparent reason they are now hunting within the forest is not that there is less snow there which makes it easier for them to hunt (as I had previously thought). They hunt by sight rather than hearing so do not take rodents under the snow in the same way that Great Grey Owls do. They have been hunting Field Voles (markmus) in the forestry clearings but when the snow comes these live under the snow and become unavailable for the Hawk Owls. But Bank Voles (klatremus) which are smaller and therefore not normally at the top of the menu are much more likely to run over the snow and these live in the forest rather than in the clearings. Therefore, the snow causes the Hawk Owls to change prey and they have to go where the prey is which is within the forest. Very interesting and thanks to Jan Olav Nybo for enlightening me. I have also discovered that TWO Common Buzzards are hanging on and they seem to have favoured areas within a kilometre of each other but are individually identifiable with one bird being a lot paler than the other. The Pygmy Owl seems to have made itself at home and was singing mid-morning on Friday when the temperature was -16C and I was having problems with my fingers and the camera. When the sun is shining the Hawk Owls and Pygmy Owl sit nice and exposed in tree-tops which makes it easier for me to find them but also passerines and Great Spotted Woodpeckers have been particularly angry with their presence. The strongest response comes though when the Pygmy Owl sings and then all the tits in the area converge on the bird to scold it as can be heard in this video taken with my phone. Pygmy Owl (spurveugle) here it is singing and puff out its throat and pumps its tail which can be seen better in the following video Pygmy Owl and an angry Great Spotted Woodpecker (flaggspett) and a Great Tit (kjøttmeis) joins the party possibly the same 'pecker giving the Hawk Owl (haukugle) grief the owl didn't seem that bothered though this Jay (nøtteskrike) got in on the action the feathers sticking out on the side of the head look very unnatural The Great Grey Shrike (varlser) wonders around the whole valley and is difficult to find Buzzard (musvåk) #1 #2 a much paler bird the late afternoon skies have been very pink recently

What kinds of doves can you find in the United States? Doves and pigeons (which is what larger doves are typically called) are stocky birds characterized by short necks, short slender bills, and a diet that is heavy on seeds. Due to their apparent peaceful nature, they are popular birds and a common visitor to backyards! Today, you will learn about 7 types […] The post 7 Doves (& Pigeons) That Live In The United States! appeared first on Bird Watching HQ.

New data show long-term declines of woodland bird species across the UK. Some specialist woodland species have declined dramatically, including willow tit, which has shown the second biggest decline of any common and widespread UK bird. Five of the 10 common and widespread species showing the biggest declines in Wales are farmland birds. The distribution […]

Yesterday was one of those glorious winter days that I just wish we had all the time – blue skies, no wind, 30 cm of crisp snow and temperatures a very refreshing -15C! As long as you are dressed correctly, which I do not always do, then it is just lovely to be out. If, on top of this, the birdies play ball then we are talking dream like conditions and yesterday was indeed a dream! Quantity of avian biomass was low, very low, but when I had close encounters with two Hawkies and a Pygmy Owl plus a couple of Moose then I am very pleased. The snow that has fallen is so deep (and especially so just a little higher up) that it is affecting the wildlife: 1. The Hawk Owls are now feeding within woodland where there is less snow rather than in the clearings and are I believe finding it harder to locate rodents 2. The Pygmy Owl was my first sighting in Maridalen since Dec 2018 and is a sure sign that the species is recovering/returning to the area due to the good rodent numbers and also that the conditions further in the forest are becoming unsuitable so they are moving to lower more open areas. 3. A mother Moose and her calf feeding by the side of the road in the middle of the day is a sure sign of animals that have had to flee the thick snow and look for easier pickings closer to people. 4. There seems to be just one Common Buzzard left in Maridalen and when I saw it today its wings were drooping and it didn’t look to be coping so well with the snow and cold (there is a reason this is the first time they have tried to spend the winter in Oslo) Pygmy Owl (spurveugle) - my first in Maridalen since Dec 2018 one of two Hawk Owls (haukugle) and the second bird I think this is the only Common Buzzard (musvåk) that is left I only avoided hitting this Moose which suddenly crossed the road because I had already started braking after having noticed the Buzzard mother and calf
