Bad news

Hey everyone! I don't know why it's taken me so long to write this, but long story short, my main, non school computer has a short in it, so I won't be able to use it any time soon. We are getting it repaired, but the estimates for the repair shop say it'll take about 2 weeks to get it done, so I won't be uploading any observations for a good while. I'm still going to attempt to get one photo of an animal every day, so that when I do have my computer back, I will be able to upload photos as usual.

Many thanks,

Bird chart

Hello all! I am (Starting on January 1st) going to make a chart of all of the species of bird I have seen so far, and how regularly they show up. The reason I am doing this, is that I've noticed that the two types of bird of prey I've seen around our apartment typically only stray to this area when there is high wind. Once the Hooded crows show up is when I typically notice two things. Number one that both types of bird of prey (Eurasian sparrowhawk & Eurasian kestrel) show up anywhere from a day to three days after the winds are strong enough to carry a similar sized bird (Hooded crows) and that the small "woodland" birds tend to either leave the area, or go into hiding. The birds I've witnessed doing so include White-spectacled bulbuls, European Robin, Common chaffinch, Brambling, and more. Besides that, I also am going to start a personal "New Years" biolitz to find and photograph certain animals I've wanted to see for the longest time. Thanks for reading
