BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO

Tits up

I went for a walk in the forest today to see what the situation was like for drumming woodpeckers. The snow made the going rather tough and I should maybe have chosen skis. There was not much in the way of drumming although I did hear one distant bird. It only drummed very occasionally and seemed to move around. At various times I thought it was a Three-toed, a Great Spot or a Black but could never nail it. One rather obvious explanation is that there was more than one bird/species drumming….

Other than that there was little in the forest except for a few tits up in the canopy.

this Goldcrest (fuglekonge) bathed in sunlight seemed very out of place 
Treecreepers (trekryper) always walk up the sides or the back of a tree and it is scientifically proven that they NEVER walk up the front, and that most certainly isn't an alternative fact!
