My previous post about birds (https://callofnatureblog.wordpress.com/2014/12/12/birds/) contained pictures taken in the warm season. Now, as winter “officially” began (solstice), I think it would be a good idea to go back “into the white”.
Before it’s getting cold, many birds fly to warmer places, while others remain to endure the frost. The seagulls, wild ducks and even crows belong to the last type. And if they find a small pond where they can get fish, this can be seen as a true haven.
Speaking about gulls and crows, I should mention that an old “rivalry” exists between them. In spring, crows often attack the nests of seagulls, which are successfully defended by these. Well, in winter everything seems to be quiet. At least this is how it looked like the day I took these pictures.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
P.S. These photos were shot at the beginning of this year. As I’m writing this post, the weather is sunny (yet cold) in Bucharest. Still waiting for snow 🙂
