Parakeets in The Hague


This video from Denmark says about itself:

Part of a nature series on northern European bird song. This one was recorded in spring of 2007, featuring the Thrush Nightingale. Filmed just west of Copenhagen, Denmark (Kags og Utterslev Mose). Includes Cuckoo (Cuculus canorus), Blackbird (Turdus merula), and Thrush Nightingale (Luscinia luscinia) and other species. Ends with 3 minutes of an amazingly loud singing nightingale to a view of the shrubs and clouds.

Today, around the Monsterseweg in The Hague. This is close to Ockenburgh, the park from where ring-necked parakeets are said to have spread to many places in the Netherlands. So, it was not so surprising to hear and see quite some of those parakeets here.

Other birds: blackbird, carrion crow, magpie, jay, wood pigeon.

Later, from a train, a white stork in a meadow near Warmond.
