Robin sitting in the cold...
having his feathers all round!
like a soft fluffy ball

All signs of spring disappeared overnight.
my whole garden is covered with a layer of whites
Bibis warm paws melted his signature in the frost.

inspection in number 7

Because it is such a beautiful sunny day,
it really smells&feals like spring in the air.
I am not the only one thinking this....

This blue-tit thinks it is time for inspection in number 7

finch (female) eating sunflowerseeds.

Its so cute to see how they eat it.
first they have to peel the seed, before being able to eat the kernel
and it is astonishing to see how quicky and handy they can do this.
even we with our fingers could not peel those seeds that quickly.

A caol-tit (zwarte mees), (Parus Ater) discovered peanuts on the feedingtable.
In a few flights they were all gone.

glimpse of spring

Somehow it seems that the icy cold-winter-night is over....
at least... if you look at some brave flowers...peeking out of the ground.
They at least seem to say...all gone...
go away cold...!...we are coming...
make way!
just hurry up...! its time!
now its time to go to spring...!
even some birds I heard tweating the same song..
a great-tit...-cheaeep-cheeep...come spring!
a nut-hatch... pjieuw---pjieuwww! high pitch sound...
so clearly sounding in the mostly silent cold wet air.
maybe wheater-circumstances...are not freely joining these songs.

or is it only wishfull thinking?
I like to join the songs of the birds and flowers...

Normal water is not okee.
I think, Bibi thinks...
it has to be flowerwater...pondwater...sinkwater...
any water..... as long it is not just plain water.
today it is anemonewater that he prefers for a drink.

Blackbird on the feedingtable
but first he looks carefully if there are no intruders...before eating his meal.

robin on the feedingtable

Cold and drizzling outside...
but this is for the finch no obstacle to come to the feading table..
or maybe the reason to come
having a full meal for keeping warm.

At first I thought it was a leaf
being moved by the wind... closer inspection... I saw it was this feather.
glued to a branch of the wisteria (blue-rain)
gently twirling by the wind

snow gone

Now all the snow is gone....
robin still likes his spot on top of the birds
as a perchpole from where he can oversee the feedingtable
and see when its safe to take his turn.

long-tailed tit

As it is very cold outside...
birds are coming off and on to the feeding-table.
Suddenly I heard a soft bump against the glasswindow
a long-tailed tit (staartmees) had tried to fly thru my glasswindow,

a moment later he sat puzzled and dizzy on the ground.

I was happy he was not crashed .

robin on one leg

It continues to freeze and being cold,
yet the sun peeking thru gives the world outside a postcard-view.

Everyday robin comes to inspect the feeding table..
always waiting his turn when it is safest.
meanwhile enjoying the sunshine,
perfectly balancing on one leg,
keeping the other one warm in his pocket

robins firy fircoat

couple of days it has been freezing day and night...
so its rather cold outside....
snow still lying as a white carpet on the ground and whitening the trees & branches
which makes the surroundings and atmosphere of an intense quiet.

Robin comes along on my feedingtable...

His feathers covering around him as a thick firy fircoat,
changing him into a very fluffy round soft redball!
with those searching...looking eyes for a little something
