The sightings and occasional thoughts of an English birder in Oslo
BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO
Wednesday, 9 January 2013
Birding today was limited to a whistle stop Tour de Maridalen. Only sighting of note was an immature male Goshawk (hønsehauk) feeding on the side of pork. I saw it from about 50m away flapping its wings to keep on the meat but as I came closer and tried to take a picture it flew off. The passerines in the area didn't seem scared by its presence as Bullfinches (dompap), tits and a Great Spotted Woodpecker (flaggspett) appeared immediately it left.
