Christmas was celebrated in Hamar. I checked artsobs on 23rd and almost gave up all hope and had to work hard to build some motivation.
However, there is always a better chance to see something if you get out and about and I had an idea about where to go. This paid off very well with a couple of Pine Grosbeak konglebit and over 50 Waxwing sidensvans as the highlights.
So Christmas was saved and all was well in the world.
My birding addictions are with other species / habitats than "grossers" but I can understand Rixy's obsession with these near mythical birds:)
