BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO

Goosander

Birding was confined to a walk along the upper part of Akerselva in Oslo today. A single Dipper and a Goosander with some bread-eating Mallards were the highlights. On a warm, sunny day there was a lot of activity from the tits with song and display and much chasing of rival birds. Maybe spring is about to spring?

Here you can why Goosander is one of the "sawbill" ducks along with Red-breasted Merganser and Smew
