These guys are one of the first birds to arrive after winter. There is still snow in the forests, but you can already hear the songs of these birds. However, not always. It happens that these birds appear in the forests in flight, they purposefully fly to their usual places. At such moments, these birds of course do not sing, and it is very difficult to photograph them.
The photo below is just that. I saw this bird on April 3, quite by accident, it was very far and high.
And as soon as the males fly to their usual places, and begin to look for and occupy territories, then they already begin to sing, showing others that this place is already occupied by them.
