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.

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”.
The designer behind this creature really did a magnificent job.

– Could you please share some of it with us, said Mrs. Chaffinch politely.
A thunderstorm was coming, and suddenly all the seagulls wanted to fly at the same time.
I am glad to see that you are back in my garden after spending the winter in north Africa. Thinking that you flew all the way by your own force, with a body that weighs less than 25 grams, fills me with great respect. I hope you will have a wonderful summer.
A beautiful woodpecker in our rowan tree this afternoon. In Norwegian, it is called a “flaggspett”, its latin name is “dendrocopos major”.
