The sightings and occasional thoughts of an English birder in Oslo
BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO
Thursday, 7 February 2019
Yesterday was a birding lite day but I did check in on the Water Rail who is still enjoying his oats and experimented with taking photos of a Robin in the snow.
this bird is a 2cy (born last year). I think that many people assume that the presence of a wing bar on the greater coverts always means a bird is a youngster but adults can also have a thin wing bar. The pale tips to the tertial are however a sure sign of (young) age
