Dåvøy 24 November 2008

Female Two-barred Crossbill båndkorsnebb

White-tailed Eagle havørn

An almost good photo of a Common Gull fiskemåke conforming to the unwritten law of "if its in focus then a wing tip will be missing"

Black-headed Gull hettemåke - uncommon winter bird in Øygarden

Seemed like a quiet day at the time but looking back on it there were some decent observations highlight being at least one Two-barred Crossbill båndkorsnebb - they are still hanging about in the crossbill flocks.

Great views of a White-tailed Eagle havørn, a Goshawk hønsehauk, several Velvet Scoter sjøorre and most of the usual fare.

Back home at Tjeldstø a late Teal krikkand joined the Mallards stokkand feeding on the shore (all freshwater still frozen).

I just stumbled onto your blog and I'm so glad I did. I love birds and had once planned on becoming an Ornithologist. Your photos are stunning.
