Chiffchaff or Willow Warbler

What is it; a Willow Warbler (Fitis) or a Chiffchaff? (Tjiftjaf).
I don't know the difference.
Its one of them.

Fluffy splashing water

This morning very early, I heard water splashing…
I though maybe the central heating is making noises.
But then a second thought …wait a minute…it must be Fluffy.
I sneaked into the room to see, grabbed my cam…

There he was: 
Upside down in a bucket with a little water in it.
He was trying to get the water out.

A little unsharp photo's, but too much fun to see

raining all day long

It has been raining all day long.
When I was going outside, this blue tit was sitting on a branch…in the rain and stayed there,
even I was so very close.
Somehow he did not mind the rain, and me being so near.

Woodpecker young

 Yesterday the young woodpecker tried the jar from all sides.
He had almost to climb into the jar, to get the last out.

This morning he wondered: 'Where has all the stuff gone?'

Is n't there just a little yummy something left????

coal family

A loud chirping and tweeting came from the tree.
It was loud!
You could not miss it.
It faded and than again..loud as loud as possible.
Young coal tits chirping from the top of their voices.
Mother  coal was collecting peanut butter and giving it to their young.
The young begging, screaming, as loud as possible, demanding to be first!

Many woodpeckers

Its was rush hour around the peanut butter jar.
Not only one or two Mr. woodpeckers…no…at least 4 ..and also there is a Mrs woodpecker who was snacking.
Some have a complete black cap, some have a little red dot, and one has a big red cap

They even were fighting a little bit…who was first!

Its a beautiful family
and this reveals why the peanut butter jar is empty that soon!
