Squirrel



 The squirrels are back!

They are inspecting the neighbours walnut tree again.

However the nuts are not ripe yet, but maybe they are thinking the nuts are good enough.

I still have some last-year-nuts and threw them out. It did not take long that one of the squirrels found them.

Redstart




 This morning I noticed a bird, which I could not determine at first hand.

It looked like a blonde robin and then seeing it from the back I thought it might be a sparrow.

It flew away...so yeah...who can tell?

The I saw him again...and I noticed his red start!

It looks like a young female Redstart.

A very rare bird here in my garden. so that was special.

Backlicht




 I love it when the light is highlighting small details, which you rarely notice in normal light.

Red Admiral




 Every day a butterfly (Red Admiral) comes having a sunbath at the end of the afternoon.

His wings are rather damaged, but he still can fly very good.

What would have happened? Was it a bird snapping at his wings, but he could escape?

Wagtail









 Its not often that a wagtail comes visiting to have a bath. However on a very warm day he sometimes comes.

He is so extremely quick and its a joy to see how he is ruffling and shaking to get his feathers all cleaned up.

Green woodpecker.




 Last night, already getting dark, I suddenly saw a green woodpecker climbing up the tree.

I always am happy when I see him, however because of his camouflaged outfit I rarely see him.

I do hear him when he is laughing his socks off. And that's the reason I love this bird so much. He laughs at fear and worry. He reminds me of the laughing horse in Job 39: 22 (He laughs at fear and is afraid of nothing.)

(Now in these days so helpful as a reminder during the covid fear. The spread of fear and control, attached to the fraud and cover ups, is actually more of a problem than the virus.)

Here, the green woodpecker is eating the black ants, who are running up and down the bark of this oak.

Green woodpeckers always laugh!
