thank you for the observations and superb pictures of the sparrowhawk! :headroll:
it seemed to me that at least first the crow hunted (mobbed) the sparrowhawk but then the hawk certainly hunted the crow(s). they were so swift and went out of sight so often that it's difficult to see how many there were. probably there was only one hawk however. :laugh:
then the curious jay had to come high to the nest tree to see better what was going on. :mrgreen:

11:27 the crow made some really extraordinary voices. i've never heard anything like that but it was a crow. in the end of the duck-like grr's it made the first phone of the ggnauck-sound. i'm beginning to suspect that a crow is behind those strange voices, too. i wish that a crow (or any bird!) would one day come in front of the camera and sing like that.

12:12 Raimis is calling :loveshower:
12:13 is calling again. I think Milda is calling too. It sounds a bit far
...
there was something funny going on with this voice. it was an eagle calling but it sounded strange... first it sounded like Raimis but then changed to an eaglet's voice.
the second call was similar but this time the eaglet's voice broke to 'Milda's' voice.
maybe it was an eaglet trying to call in adult's voice? :puzzled:

Pictures from the bird

the tail with a part of green feathers
Image

the head- I still look for a better pic :bow:
Image

you can take the picture of the tail to the picture of the head. Then you have a whole bird :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Image

A bull-necked, big-headed crossbill with a deep and heavy bill, otherwise identical to Common Crossbill. Males are red; females and juveniles greenish. Deeper call notes "chup, chup" subtly different from Red Crossbill. Occurs mainly in mature and tall coniferous forests, especially pine forests, although may be found in spruce and conifer plantations during periodic irruptions following pine-cone crop failure.
i'll keep the pictures here because the original post is on the previous page.
i agree, it was a crossbill, but which crossbill, the common crossbill Loxia pytyospittacus or the parrot crossbill L. curvirostra, that i can't say. in my bird guide L. curvirostra sits in a spruce and L. pytyospittacus is working on a pine. the bird guide says that the L. curvirostra has a thinner bill than the other. if i had to guess i'd say that this was L. curvirostra. the beak was not very spectacular. the juvenile common crossbill has stripy dark brown costume, including the head. this also matches well with the bird who was seen. :rolleyes:

the bird dropped at least two cones from the top before she found a suitable cone for her taste and brought it down. then she picked and ate seeds from the cone.


here you can see some pictures:

the text is in Finnish but i think you can use some translator.
anyway it says that juvenile common crossbill are greyish brown and stripy all over.

October 11

Good Morning :hi:

ame, thank you very much for the videos.
I was not sure which crossbill it was. You can be right. I have not seen in my book. It is often better explained in books than on the internet.

It is raining heavily. It sounds like it! :slap:
6:44 a tawny owl female is calling

the weather does not look as bad as I thought. Milda and Raimis could work if they want :whistling:

i found an interesting detail during last night. it was raining most of the night but at times the clouds became thinner letting the moonlight glow through.
00:17 a tiny spark was lit in the top right corner. a water droplet hanging on a stick collected moonlight and reflected the light on the camera, only for a few seconds. then the droplet probably dropped. :rolleyes:
in the top left corner i added an enlargement (x1.5) of the top right corner.

i found something interesting from yesterday evening.
18:21 a big and heavy bird flew to the top.
it was probably an eagle.
Image

18:24 the bird flew away to the right. i could not get any good picture of it.
the bird said nothing on the top. the crows commented the arrival of the bird but didn't make more noise.

Thanks! To me it looked a young one, doesn;t have to be ours. His legs were hanging and he was smaller than an old one and darker, He was well educated and quiet :mrgreen:

I also saw the "blue" sky in the dark night. Didn't have sound, so didn't heard the rain.

12:31 migrating redwings (Turdus iliacus) flew by. one of them flew through the nest. :D
this picture shows well three distinctive characteristics of the redwing: a white stripe above the eye, a white submoustachial stripe beginning from the lower mandible, and the red underpart of the wing. the red colour extends to the flanks (stomach sides) of the bird so that the red colour of the flanks is seen when the redwing is standing on ground or a branch, not on the wings.
Image

one more picture for the fun of it. :rolleyes:

more pictures of the redwing here:

Good afternoon!
Thanks to all for messages!
Yesterday I had to look without sound and only till 14:00, approximately.

At 10:47 the bird sat down on a fir-tree on the right. At 10:50 some more birds flied. Till 10:53 they flew to a tree of a nest and back.
At 11:00 the bird flied.

Image

At 12:49 the jay sat down on the right branch, then on the left-hand branch.

:hi:
never saw a redwing flying alone, so i took a closer look.
voila: there were at least four, of them. down left the bird sitting on the branch which you both have on your beautiful images.
