Avian Adventures

The recent spell of sunshine and, after a really work-laden week, some free afternoons made for a good combination to look for birds around Dubravka. With some I’m not too sure about their ID, so you’re welcome to comment and correct! 🙂

With the ID of the hawfinch I already had help – thank you to Tomas http://titodaking.blogspot.sk/ for that.hawfinch

Male and female blackbirds have already been showing courtship behaviour.

Bullfinches are particularly beautiful with their red chests. bullfinch

I also like the collared doves, and, yes, I’collared dovemagpiem fascinated by magpies!

In some places, several species could be found together, like blue tit, greenfinch and coal tit. There was also a chaffinch hopping just out of the photo.bluetit grenfinches coaltit It never fails to surprise me how much birdlife can be found in the small green spots between the concrete high-rise blocks of flats. There are even goldfinches!goldfinches
