Wednesday Wings: The Birds of Spring III

An old German children’s song is about the joys of spring, when “all the birds are here already”.

From the list of “blackbird, thrush, finch and starling” you can assume that those birds used to be more migratory or simply tried their luck in the woods back in those days.

There are different thrushes living here, but they are rare visitors to the garden, but can be found in the woods.

    My opa used to sing that song to me when I was little. What an unexpected happy memory. Thanks, Giliell.

    There’s an ornithological couple building their nest just outside my bedroom window. Can’t say I fault them, it’s a great spot (hard to reach for anyone not a bird, lots of space and shelter, etc.), but… seriously. I’ll have to keep an eye out for hatchlings, though I think they’re just outside my sightline.
