Backyard birds during last days
Concert in our backyard gets new artists almost daily. Tens of Thrushes, Chaffinches, Eurasian Robins and Tits have been singing already for weeks, but during last days we got some new artists; Eurasian Woodcock (Scolopax rusticola) and Eurasian Wryneck (Jynx torquilla) arrived two days ago and Pied Flycather (Ficedula hypoleuca) today. Wryneck and Flycather were both bit early, but it's not big surprise this spring, nights are already warm and days are getting warmer all the time - maximum temperatures have been here already +18 degrees Celcius. Summer is coming - no doubt about it! I wonder what are the next artists, perhaps Blackcap, Lesser Whitethroat or Wood Warbler, who knows?
