BIRD GUIDING AROUND OSLO

Waxwings

Some more pictures and a video of the Waxwings (sidensvans) at the Oslo Botanical Gardens on Thursday. There were ca.1000 birds there and they made for a very impressive sight and sound. With such vast numbers it wasn't going to take long for them to eat all the berries that were there and reports from today suggest very few birds were left.

I am not entirely satisfied with the picture I got with them lacking sharpness - I'm not sure whether this was down to technical problems or photographer problems...

here we can see the red waxy growths on the wings that give the bird its English name
