#36 European herring gull  (Larus argentatus), 27 March Mikkelborg, Denmark

 

Naming of birds can be tricky in different languages

The Danish name is Soelvmaage which translates to Silver gull = argentatus (latin)

We have another gull called Sildemaage, which translates into Herring gull  aka as Lesser black-backed gull in English B)

Yes indeed, they never sit still for long, we've had one (maybe 2) in the garden for years now and I only got my first photos a week ago.

#39 Eurasian jay (Garrulus glandarius)

Normally quite shy but this bird was quite confident. Unfortunately high ISO was required.

Kokkedal Denmark

Nice portrait of the Jay which as you say is often seen but rarely cooperates like that one.

I wish I could persuade one to stay still for 30 seconds :wacko:

#40 Blue tit (Cyanistes caeruleus), Kokkedal Denmark

Not the best shot ever but interesting to see the bird in mid-air "without wings"

Bluetit_3118.JPG.24e25280d289c9b999f9f509e1bda64e.JPG

 

The picture was taken near the area where the Tawny Owl`s hang out. They are still doing well and all four Owlets are alive.

The Owlets are slowly transforming into proper Owls and are starting to develop proper wings. They move around quite a bit and are getting more and more tricky to find.

Maybe you should try to visit one of the larger cities in Israel.

They are relatively common there and behave like city birds, so quite approachable.

I agree on the Jays. Good shots for these shy birds and it's great to see the owls again!

I was looking forward to adding some more Yellowhammer images myself this year but alas it won't happen. Envious you have them near home.
