Bird of prey

Bird of prey
The weather improved a bit today. We had a blue sky for a few hours, but it is still cold, maybe 6C. I stopped at the nature park Slätmossen in Handen where I spotted a sparrow-hawk up a birch tree. Next to it sat a great tit. I hope the bird of prey didn't eat the "talgoxe" after I had left.

It is a fun name for a bird. The Swedish word is also funny. It consists of two words, Talg and oxe. Talg means tallow and oxe means ox.

What a brave little bird to be sitting there next to that big scary guy.

This is a superb shot! I love that the birds are easy to spot but their colours blend so well with the tree.

That is a huge bird.
Our birds are mainly the same size as ROBIN.
Colder here now, so the birds got more food:)
