New competition from @nelinoeva, and this week's topic is - BUSY BIRDS
The common chaffinch or simply the chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs)
This photo epitomizes the proverb "worries is full of mouth". This father of the family collected several caterpillars for the nestlings.
The common whitethroat (Curruca communis)
And this gray bird was looking for something in the bushes at the edge. Coming closer, she took off and sat on a branch and I saw a feather in her beak. And she was going to use this feather to build a nest.
The Eurasian bullfinch, common bullfinch or bullfinch (Pyrrhula pyrrhula)
It is quite rare to meet a bullfinch in spring forest. They are very secretive. And even this bullfinch I saw by chance. He collected scraps of bark from the branches. Apparently used it as bedding for the nest.
The fieldfare (Turdus pilaris)
Well, here the construction of the nest is in full swing. True, in a not very good place for this, near a transformer of an electrical substation.
The great tit (Parus major)
A titwas sitting on a branch and was picking out something. Then she took it somewhere. Apparently it was a suitable material for a home.
The long-tailed tit or long-tailed bushtit (Aegithalos caudatus)
And here this bird is not just sitting, oh no. The nest is not yet ready, their nests are in the form of a ball, somewhat like a bee hive.
This bird crumpled what it was, pressed the material to make it stronger.
The Eurasian golden oriole (Oriolus oriolus)
It was during such a funny activity that I discovered this amazing bird. I have no idea why she wanted this plastic bag. I know that kites decorate their nests with this. Did the oriole also decide to use it as a material.
The European pied flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca)
If you look closely, you can see that this bird is holding a couple of some thin flaps in her beak. It is immediately clear that she is building a nest.
Not only the birds are busy, but also the chipmunk, diligently picks berries by his cheeks to bring them home to the "storage rooms".😀
