Breakfast is served!

Hvert år i november pleier det å dukke opp sidensvanser på gjennomreise, og alltid har det vært en slags ‘avstandsforelskelse’ fordi de alltid synes å velge busker og trær som er litt for langt unna for mitt kamera. Denne gang hadde jeg kjøpt meg et 600 mm objektiv og var forberedt, men – sidensvansen uteble. Inntil idag!

Every year in November a band of transiting Bohemian waxwings  tends to emerge out of nowhere, and this has always been kind of a ‘distant love’ since they are always choosing bushes or trees just out of reach of my camera. However, this time I had bought myself a 600 mm lense to be prepared for anything, only this time they didn’t show up! >
Untill today!
Hei, vet du at den maten du serverer her ute er frossen?
Hey, do you know that the food you’re serving out here are all frozen?
Vi sjekker alle ‘nye ansikter’ her idag. Vennligst sitt stille mens vi tar et bilde!
We’re checking all new faces here today. Please remain still whilst we take a photo!

OK! Er det bra sånn?
OK, is this OK by you?
Ikke vær så griske nå! Hvor skal jeg sitte?
Don’t be so greedy, Where do I sit?

Vet du, dette var slett ikke så verst! Nesten som friske bær med iskrem. Vi skal merke oss dette stedet i GPS’n!

Do you know, this wasn’t bad at all! Neasrly like fresh berries with a bit of ice cream to go with it!  We’ll make a note of this place in our GPS!
Dette vil antagelig kunne holde for idag?
This will probably be enough for me today!
Jeg tar med denne. Ser deg imorgen!
I’ll grab this. See ya tomorrow!
(Compliments of SRB)

Please return me to INDEX

    Vi hadde besøk av Sidensvansen der vi bodde før, men ikke her vi bor nå dessverre. Synd, for det er veldig vakre fugler!

      Det er en ‘farende fant’! Vi ser den her, men bare et par dager i November og vips er den borte!
      Men jeg er enig: En nydelig fugl! For 10-15 år siden hadde vi besøk av store flokker av stilits. En fargerik fugl og et fantastisk skue, men siden har de vært søkk borte!

  3. It is going to have to get very much colder here before we have the treat of Waxwings…..but there are thin pickings for them this year

    • Seenorway says:

      So you know these little guys? They are actually staying further north through summer, but with the cold they are spreading out covering large parts of Norway

      • In most years here in central England it is January when Waxwings make an appearance when it is cold but the colder climes further north drive them down on the hunt for berries. This year I fear they will go short. In mild winters they never reach this far south
