Owls 2008-03-12 - Tawny owls
Lens: Canon TC + digital zoom
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/60, f5,6
-------------------------------------------
I was told that chicks of Tawny owl, Strix aluco, had been seen in Fredriksdal forest. The very next morning, on my way to work, I spotted them in a tree top about 75 m or so from the path. There were three chicks sitting close together. As I started taking photos I noticed a grown owl arriving with food!

Pigeon 2008-03-04 - Wood Pigeon

Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/250 - 320, f8 / 1/640s, f5,6 (last two)
-------------------------------------------
The rather big Wood Pigeon, Columba palumbus, is no longer a pronounced bird of the wood. Nowadays it can be found in the cities as well. Most of our Wood Pigeons migrates but on mild winters many stays here and try their luck.

-------------------------------------------
In the evening around sunset large amounts of birds gather together in some tree tops in the Fredriksdals forest. They are Crows, Rooks and Jackdaws. All new arrivers are saluted loudly. There is a lot of "talk" just as there would be in a human crowd.

Crow 2008-02-15 - Birds of the Crow family

All birds of the Crow family, Corvidae, are in most cases mainly black. They are all intelligent birds and also very sociable. Many of them nest in colonies. Here are three of the family: Our grey crow, the long tailed Magpie and the Jackdaw.

Birds 2008-02-14 - Birds around the feeder
Lens: Canon TC
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/500s, f5,6 (first three), 1/160s, f8 (next two), 1/250s, f6.3 (last two)
-------------------------------------------
At my work we are testing a new bird feeder this winter. We also sell it. It looks like a tall nestbox with one hole on each side. Filling it is done by lifting the roof. The feeder has been quite popular among the local birds, though it's mostly visited by Tree Sparrows and Large Tits.

Mallard 2008-02-04 - Mallard
Lens: None (zoom)
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/125s (first) 1/80s, f5,6
-------------------------------------------
There are a lot of mallards in the Jordbodalen ponds. They can be quite fun to watch. These male mallards were splishing and splashing all the time. I had a hard time catching them with my camera. The photos were all taken at the pond by the peoples park Sundspärlan.

Moorhen 2008-02-04 - Moorhen
Lens: None (zoom)
Flash: No
Settings: M mode, ISO 80, 1/320s, f5,6 (first); 1/250s, f8
-------------------------------------------
An interesting bird that can be found in the Jordbodalen ponds is the Moorhen, Gallinula chloropus. I don't know how many there are but at least a dozen. They are quite beautiful, a bit shy and have quite large feet. I manage to get quite close to these.
