Oriolus oriolus and Lanius Collurio nest

Today my brother and my father managed to rind three Golden Orioles. They also took pictures of them. I've never ringed an Golden oriole so I consider it for a big success. My brother also send me pictures of 5 little Lanius Collurio in their nest.

Lanius Senator in Northwestern Bulgaria

Yesterday a received a call from my father in Belogradchik. He told me that he saw a male LAnius Senator hunting near the road. I was very surprised because for nine years of ringing I had never seen that bird.
There is no chance Lanius Senator to be mistaken with Lanius Collurio as you can see below.

Woodchat Shrike(Lanius Senator)

Red-backed Shrike(Lanius Collurio)

As you can see that Lanius Senator isn't a typical bird for northwestern Bulgaria.

Pictures of an adder !

I'm sorry for posting something else in Bird blog but I thought this will be interesting. This is a little adder caught by my father. I can ensure you it was safely released.


Few week ago I went to my hometown to see my father and my brother. Then Sasho and me decided to go to my village. The weather was perfect and we just couldn't resist to take a little walk. We fount these beautiful turtles in one small forest near the village. (I'm sorry for the late post but I received the pictures now).
I was happy that day because I was able to spend some time with my brother. Now he is far from me , but I hope soon we will take walks again :)

This is me :)
