Flying through –

I mange år har jeg bedrevet foring av småfugler i hagen, og gjennom årene som har gått, har det blitt noen tusen fuglefotografier !
Her noen representanter for de forskjellige artene

Over thee years I have been feeding various birds visiting our garden, and over these years several thousands of photographs has been accumulating! Today I show you a few representatives from the various species –

Kopi av Picture 1222Første mann ut er ‘Granmeisen’ (Parus Montanus).  Den er veldig lik ‘Løvmeisen’ og kan påtreffes i de samme områdene, så man må nesten være ekspert for å kunne se forskjell på det to artene.

‘First man out’ is the ‘willow tit’ (Parus Montanus). The likeness to the marsh tit  is astounding. To distinguish the one from the other, you’ll have to be an expert! The legs of the willow tit is slightly lighter than those of the ‘marsh tit’, an there is some minor details in the tail to be observed. Then there is the song, but – very much alike!

Kopi av Picture 1218ffBlåmeisen (Parus caeruleus) er en av våre minste meisefugler. En munter liten krabat med et helsikes temperament når det gjelder. Finnes praktisk talt over alt sør for Bødø.

The ‘Blue tit’ (Parus caeruleus) is one of our smallest tits. A funny little guy with a temper to go with it. In Norway we find it all over the place as long as we are south of the city Bodø.

Kopi av Picture 1224Så er det storebror i meisefamilien – Kjøttmeisen (Parus Major), nærmest for stamgjest å regne. Også den finnes over hele landet med unntak av de aller nordligste kyststrøkene i Finmark.

Then there is the ‘big brother’ among the tits: ‘The grand tit’, and as the name implies – the biggest and strongest of them all. To be found all over Norway with the exeption of the  coastal areas in the north of Finnmark.

Picture 773aSå  har vi en mer sjelden gjest: ‘Kjernebiteren. (Cocothraustes coccothraustes) som egentlig hører hjemme i et belte over mellom-Europa og mellom-Asia, men som faktisk kan påvises i Norge på et avgrenset område langs Oslofjordens vestside fra Asker og ned mot Tønsberg.
Legg merke til nebbet! Dette er den største av våre finkefugler og i nebbet har den et kjevtrykk på 50 kilo!

Then we have a more rare guest coming by once in a while: The Hawfinch!  Actually this bird belong to a zone stretching through mid-Europe and mid-Asia, but over the latest years it may be seen in Norway and then only in a small area along the Oslofjord stretching from Asker and down to the city of Tunsberg.
Observe the beak! This is the largest of our finches and posess a beak pressure of 100 lbs!

Kopi av Picture 964Jeg kunne jo ha ventet til jul med å publisere denne karen: Dompapen med frue (Pyrrhula pyurrhula) som pynter opp i landskapet når det nærmer seg julenKonen er noe mer nøytral i sitt valg av farger.

Picture 1251ffI could have waited untill Christmas before publishing this couple: The Bullfinches (Pyrrhula pyurrhula) that decorate our landscapes when the Christmas approaches.
The wife is somwhat more modest in choice of colors.
Nye bilder 977Så var det ‘gråhegren’ da – (Ardea Cinerea), ikke alltid så lett å komme innpå, men det er mulig   –

Then it was the grey heron (Ardea Cinerea). Not the easiest to shoot, but it is possible!
Nye bilder 969AThere are lots more, but I won’t tire your eyes too much🙂

    Flotte tippe tipper Svein! endelig fikk jeg lov etter over en uke uten mulighet til å kunne kommentere? vet ikke hvorfor?

  2. You are so blessed to have lots of wonderful birds to photograph (he he he – no shooting allowed, glad that was sorted out!) We have grey heron here too and I have some photographs. Perhaps I might post is sometime.

    Hi, thank you for these fine photos and for calling my attention to them!

    Another hawfinch photo:

    In the Netherlands, grey herons are not shy anymore, since hunting them stoped 100 years ago:

    • petrel41 says:

      Sorry, typo: hunting herons *stopped*.

      • I’m not sure what you mean? I hope you don’t understand me here? My only ‘weapon’ when it comes to these birds is my camera. Then you may ‘shoot’ all year around!

        • petrel41 says:

          Sorry, this is a misunderstanding.

          Until about 100 years ago, it was legal to shoot herons in the Netherlands.

          Now, not anymore. They often come close to humans.

          My remark was about that history in the Netherlands.

    • Seenorway says:

      So you have given me two comments😀 (I was only seeing one here)
      But then I hope we understand each other. Yes, shooting herons has been forbidden in Norway as well for a number of years. I did however shoot on (with a gun) back in 1956, but a big disappointment. No meat, just feathers! Since then it has only been ‘shooting’ with a camera!

  4. Love those shots. We have the Blue Heron here and they are indeed difficult to photograph as they do not stay in one place very long. Lots of varieties of tits here too. Love your shot of the blue tit…. he has very striking colors!
