First ringing for 2017

On 14.04.2017 I was able to make my first bird ringing session for 2017.
As usual, I went to Veshtica ,small village near the town of Belogradchik,Bulgaria (I will make a post about it in the near future).

The weather was not very good for ringing with lots of wind and sun. That forced me to make a short ringing session, but I'm still very satisfied with the results:

2 - C.coccothraustes
1- Sylvia atricapilla
1-Fringilla coelebs
1-Prunella modularis
1-Emberiza citrinella
Total: 6 new birds.

The first snow for the year

Well this year we have a very early snow in Bulgaria. I you know I love this kind of weather, but for our bird friends it can be very dangerous. I want to share some beautiful pictures with you and don't forget to set up the bird feeders.

Garden Birds : Eurasian nuthatch

I'm interested in garden birds since I was a little boy and I've decided to make post about interesting garden birds in Bulgaria and Europe. I think that those post are going to be very interesting and useful to people that are not so familiar with bird watching ,because they will be able to learn something about nature around them.

My friends ask me questions about birds very often and I'm very happy to answer them ,but I will try to make post for those who can't ask anyone.

The Eurasian nuthatch or wood nuthatch (Sitta europaea) is a small passerine bird found throughout temperate Asia and in Europe, where its name is the nuthatch. Like other nuthatches, it is a short-tailed bird with a long bill, blue-grey upperparts and a black eye-stripe. It is a vocal bird with a repeated loud dwip call. There are more than 20 subspecies in three main groups; birds in the west of the range have orange-buff underparts and a white throat, those in Russia have whitish underparts, and …

First ringing for 2014

Couple of weeks ago, I finally made my first ringing for 2014. The results were not great, but I'm very happy that I found time to set up the mist nets. The other good news is that I managed to keep my feeder relevantly full, so even if this winter there were no ringed birds, I can say that my friends didn't starve.

For the few hours of ringing , the results were only two Great tits(Parus Major). The weather was foggy and the nets got wet very,very fast. After that there was no point of continuing.

I hope that soon, I'll find time for more ringing and more posting.
