Birds in our garden during the Covid lockdown, Spring 2020

The lockdown was a perfect opportunity to take pictures of some birds in our garden.

Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis) is the easiest bird to photograph. They usually arrive in pairs and spend long time at the feeder.

Great tits move very fast, they grab a seed and instantly take it to another branch.

A greenfinch (Carduelis chloris) and another goldfinch. We rarely see greenfinches.

European robin (Erithacus rubecula). A very curious bird with no fear. They can get very close to you. Victor took this shot without using remote control. The robin kept patiently watching us as Victor went home, found the camera and took a picture.

Snow Goose (Chen caerulescens) in the University park.

Greylag goose (Anser anser).
