Now spring is well underway, garden birds will soon be busy building nests to lay their eggs and raise their family during the coming months. Different birds, however, make different types of nests.
Spring has sprung here on the Europarc, Grimsby. The leaves are beginning to make an appearance on the trees and bushes outside of the Factory Outlet doorway.
Cage & Aviary Birds Magazine were good enough to cover our World Wildlife Day events this month and they were amazed to see our efforts reach as far as Kenya.
Spring is a great time of year. It’s the return of many things including spring flowers like daffodils, crocuses, and tulips.
The birds that have frequented our gardens throughout the winter months will all tend to hang around as regular visitors until the end of March and the ground feeding Dunnocks, Blackbirds and Wrens will be busy hopping around amongst snowdrops and crocuses.
The Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) can be seen all year round and is quite easy to identify as it is slightly smaller than the Mistle Thrush. It has even brown upperparts and buff underparts spotted brown and its underwing colour is pale yellowish-brown. Its distinctive song, which has repeated musical phrases, has frequently been referred to in poetry.
