Bird feeder

It is already 4 years since I did my first but also last bird photography at the feeder - it was at home in Czech Republic at the end of 2007. Since then I was dreaming of spending winter times at the feeder photographing small birds. The reality was that since then we have been living in flats with little chance to build a feeder nearby. it all has changed this summer when we moved to a small house in the middle of nature south of Bergen - here I finaly could build a bird feeder right on the house backyard.

 

Hide and feeder at the backyard

Just next to it I rose a simple wooden photo hide with a roof so I can do photography during rainy season and started to feed. It was still Autumn and quite warm weather but I could not resist. Also I believe that the sooner I start feeding the birds the "more famous" the feeder becomes among the local bird population :-).

So far I have spent some 3 short afternoons on the hide. The feeder is visited by common species but I hope to attract some Woodpeckers too during winter time. For now I'm satisfied with Willow Tits that frequent the feeder every day and Bramblings that visited it few weeks ago. It is still rainy weather but winter is creeping in slowly - the lake at the house already hosts the first overwintering ducks and the nearby lake has 4 Whooper Swans. Let se what this winter brings, the feeder is waiting...

    Dobrý den,
    váš příspěvek s krmítkem mě dnes dovedl k tomu, že jsem si taky na naší jabloň jedno zatím ne moc estetické připevnila a splnila si tím dlouholeté přání. Do budoucna ho snad vylepším. Teď budu jen doplňovat semínka a čekat foťákem. Vaše fotky jsou nádherné.

    Dekuji a blahopreji z prvnimu zaveseni krmitka :-) Ono ani nejde o to, jak vypada, ptaci si ho vzdy najdou a je pak moc mile kdyz tu zimni strnulost ozivuji poskakujici cimcaraci za oknem

  • pali hradisky  - krmitko

    hehe, až budem starý a nebude sa mi chcieť behať po vonku tak si to tiež spravím na záhrade ... ale nie ... dobré to je ... dobrý kryt je na nezaplatenie
