Dipper, Vesipapp (Cinclus cinclus)


This post contains 2 images and short video.

Dipper is funny bird and one of the few ones who can dive and use wings under water, this bird loves cold water. I had the change to watch this bird in action for about 6 hour in two days. I would love to be there more, but as I say some times, day job interferes privacy life :)

I discovered that three Dippers are living in about one kilometers section of river. They know their territory. And each one of them are different. One is grumpy, second anxious and third is calm :) So yea, good find near home. When this post is published them I’m actually back there, hiding myself for hoping to see Kingfisher and some Dippers:)

This is probably one of the places where I will put up my bird hide, because I saw Kingfiser there. Kingfisher is quite rare here in Estonia, especially in winter, usually they migrate to south. It is estimated that here is from march to oktober about 50-300 nesting couple. This is third year where I’m trying to photograph this bird. So decent challenge :)

Tasub ikka aeg ajalt kolada lähiümbruse jõgede ääres. Õnnestus ka jäälindu näha, eks edaspidi tuleb palju aega veeta seal kui varje valmis saab :)

Long-tailed Tit, Sabatihane (Aegithalos caudatus)

Little snowball is doing some push ups :)

Whole weekend I spent to search wild animal trails, ecpecially Fox trails, but didn’t have any luck. But at least I had the opportunity to spend couple minutes with these little birds, there where about fifteen birds. In winter these birds stick together for safety, also they find food easier this way.

Thank You for support!

Viimasel ajal on ikka päris tihti juhtunud, et satun kokku nende väikeste lindudega. Eemalt oli juba kuulda kuidas suure kisa saatel lähenevad :)

Tavaliselt on need parved jäänud 15 kuni 20 linnu kanti. Loodan ka edaspidi sattuda nendega kokku kui looduses uitan.

Sinitihane, Blue tit (Parus caeruleus)

Finally I had the opportunity to photograph Blue tit. It is really beautiful bird, but some how this bird reminds me sci-fi movie called Alien :)

Lõpuks õnnestus ka Sinitihast pildistada. Mingil kummalisel põhjusel meenutab see lind mulle ühte filmi mille nimeks siis Alien :)
