Which bird will be Dutch national bird?


This is a black-tailed godwit video.

As this blog said, there will soon be an election for national bird of the Netherlands.

There will be a long list of about 25 bird species. Then, a second round of voting with a shortlist of five bird species.

Official voting has not begun yet. However, on the site of daily Trouw, there is already unofficial voting.

This unofficial voting is about five bird candidates, proposed by Kees de Pater, who works at BirdLife in the Netherlands.

So far, as I write, 2924 people have voted.

The black-tailed godwit got 52% of the vote.

At #2 is the jackdaw, with 19% of the vote.

This video is about jackdaws (and a peacock) in England.

Then, the spoonbill, with 12%.

This is an Eurasian spoonbill video.

Then, the marsh harrier, with 11%.

This video is about young marsh harriers at their nest.

Finally, the brent goose: 7%.

This is a brent goose video from Sweden.
