Zorro just moved in

The spring is here, and many birds are looking for a new home. I try to help them a little by putting up some accomodation. I had larger birds in mind for this house, but the nuthatch could hardly wait till I had taken my ladder away before he moved in. Here he’s admiring the view from his new house. I call him Zorro because of his black mask, of course.

The winter is here

We are having this winter’s first snowfall here, it startet snowing yesterday around 2 p.m. and has not stopped yet. That means that the birds appreciate a little help finding food, and we can enjoy them visiting us. Here is a picture taken today, showing one of my favorites, I think it is called a jay in English. Its Norwegian name is “Nøtteskrike”.
