On Sunday the city birdwatching organised by the Estonian Ornithological Society each spring took place. 115 persons in 24 different Estonian cities took part.

While the number of participating cities and watchers was similar to the previous years, the number of encountered species was clearly lower than in the last couple of years. In the cities 99 bird species were noted which is 16 species less than in early spring last year. The number of noted species stayed more modest this year mainly due to the comparatively cold March and the belated arrival of migratory birds caused by this. Still in several cities cranes, different geese and sheldrakes were seen and a numerous migration of skylarks was also noted.

White-tailed eagle    Merikotkas       Haliaeëtus albicilla

 

For the first time since the start of the egg-laying male  Sulev brought a prey to the nest  for his partner. Not a fish but a migratory bird.

At sea there are areas with open water but fish seldom gather in such places. Rather they still keep in the safe shelter of the ice cover.

The northern winter is a severe scourge not only for birds but for mammals too. Some bats fly to winter quarters in warmer areas in Europe, others stay to hibernate in their native country. Bears, badgers, raccoon dogs, dormice, birch mice and hedgehogs also hibernate. Many quadrupeds however are left to face the cold and famine and in the search for shelter and food they do not even shun the dangerous closeness of humans. Smaller mammals – for instance some rodents – also visit the birdfeeders.
