No starling to see anymore

blank

As it looks, it will probably be nothing with the starling pair. For days, not a single visit of a starling in the nest box. The reason: The starlings as migratory birds have left their winter quarters here in the Rhineland and in Cologne and have moved on. There are almost no starlings here anymore. […]

Starling male courts his female

blank

Action in the willow nest box. For some time now, a male starling has shown a keen interest in one of my cave nest boxes, which were actually intended for tits. So that also a fat starling comes into the box, I had already exchanged some time ago the front with the 35mm hole against […]

Flash mob at the ground feeding station

blank

Today at noon there was a small flash mob of starlings at the ground feeding station with the participation of some blackbirds 🙂 Apparently it was too much for a blackbird at some point, whereupon it became a bit rebellious and attacked the starlings. Only the lively starlings are not really impressed by this 🙂

Bird with four paws

Since I write this morning in my video of the starling in the nesting box still of how big the “birds” would probably still be and then I’m only 1.5h later directly delivered the answer 🙂 But that the birds mutate directly to squirrels, I would not have expected. Is that perhaps the food?

Starling in the box

blank

Apparently, over time, the birds that want to breed in my nest boxes are getting bigger. What I did not even notice at first, in the last few days, a starling looked again and again in the nest box, which hangs in the willow. In this box I had mounted a few weeks ago a […]

The Starling – a little voice acrobat

blank

Visit to the squirrel house. No, this time not a squirrel but once again one of the many starlings that lurk around here in my garden ;-). During his intensive inspection he was apparently eagerly talking to himself. What I noticed, the starling presented his talent for different sounds and noises. Because the starling is […]

Listen who is coming in from outside…

The video recordings are sometimes good for a surprise. So also on the 1st Christmas Day. I was amazed when reviewing the video material, who suddenly stuck his head through the opening of the tit nesting box…

Visit to the nest box and squirrel house

blank

With today’s bad weather, it was not surprising that the great tit took a closer look at the nest box in the hazelnut tree. And during the visit, it even dropped a little snack 🙂 If this is not an argument for a permanent move into the nesting box… And in the afternoon, Foxi the […]

Delicious peanuts

blank

Squirrel Zausel had to serve as a model again today without being asked. It’s his own fault for putting himself in such a cute scene. He was sitting quite comfortably on the swing and nibbled one peanut after the other. Especially with how much enthusiasm he nibbles the peanuts out of the shell…I just had […]
