Stock pigeons and grebes


This is a video from the Netherlands about dove and cuckoo sounds.

Saturday, again to the Baillon’s crake spot.

Birdwatchers who had arrived earlier had seen the Baillon’s crakes. I did not, that day, however.

I did see the juvenile shelducks. And two stock doves coming for a drink.

Today, near a bridge, two adult great crested grebes with two very young chicks. One of the parents gave one of the chicks a fish, so small that even the youngster could swallow it.

Brightly coloured birds can become infected with bacteria that eat their feathers: here.
