This is my blog post #2,500 in the Birds category of Dear Kitty; since I started blogging in 2005 (not on WordPress then yet).
In the lakes near the south coast, a male red-breasted merganser, swimming not far from a female smew.
This is a video about two female smews in winter in Sweden.
Shoveler ducks. Redshanks on the banks.
A spoonbill feeding. It is supposed to winter in Africa now. However, every winter, some spoonbills do not migrate south. So far, this individual has been lucky, as the winter weather has not been harsh.
A bit further: an avocet.
A male pheasant.
Rooks on a field.
Turnstones on the dike.
