Context matters when it comes to mobbing calls. The post Learning the language of birds appeared first on British Ornithologists' Union.

Mid winter is a quiet time for birds around Oslo but this winter seems quieter than normal. There are some interesting birds around but the general quantity of birds is low this year and there is no indication of anything new turning up whereas some birds are disappearing (Pine Grosbeaks for example). I think we need a good winter storm to shake things up but the forecast for the next week is for milder weather. Birds definitely feel like spring is coming with tits, Greenfinches and Collared Doves all singing and I heard my first drumming Great Spotted Woodpeckers today. A visit to the fjord revealed the over wintering Little Grebe who captured a sizeable Perch which took a couple of minutes to swallow. Maridalen continues to disappoint but my smelly stream still produces a Jack Snipe if you search hard enough. Little Grebe (dvergdykker) with a sizeable Perch (abbor) not often I take pictures of a Magpie (skjære) didn't know they had a blue nictitating membrane Jacky boy (kvartbekkasin)

New research from The Australian National University (ANU) shows unless conservation actions are urgently stepped up, one of our most beautiful songbirds, the regent honeyeater, will be extinct within 20 years. The new study reveals current, already intensive, conservation efforts are not sufficient, and a huge redoubling of effort is needed if we are to […]

Suppressing this noise pollution is a major environmental goal for some urban areas. In Physics of Fluids, by AIP Publishing, researchers from Xi’an Jiaotong University used the characteristics of owl wings to inform airfoil […]

These regulations will determine how increases in biodiversity will be measured, how and where habitat can be created, and how biodiversity net gain will be […]

I went for a walk in the forest on Friday on a windless day hoping to pick up woodpeckers by the sound of their tapping. I was in an area which in previous years has produced up to 5 species but this time just produced two Great Spots. There seems to be something going on in forest over the last 12 months with woodpeckers in strangely short supply. Bird of the walk was a singing, but heard only, Hazel Grouse in a usual area. In Maridalen the Great Grey Shrike showed again but was very flighty and clearly doesn’t have a favourite area. A Mute Swan on the only area of open water is the first species of wildfowl I have seen in the valley this year and was a strange individual. Its bill was almost entirely lacking orange colour and on an overcast day it looks as though my pictures were taken in black & white. This bird had a colour ring and had been ringed just over a week previously on the fjord amongst a large group of bread eating birds. It was recorded as an adult female but without any mention of the strange bill colour. That it would then fly to Maridalsvannet on its own in January when there can not be much food for it to find is very strange but maybe it is a sick bird. My smelly stream has again revealed a Jack Snipe but attempts to watch the bird in action again failed. I positioned myself about 20m from the bird such that I could just about see it and waited and waited but the bird would not move a millimetre. Maybe investing in a trail camera is what I need to do.

Wetlands are particularly […]
