News items for tag garden - Koos van den Hout

We recently hung up some bird food in the back garden (way out of reach of the cats!) and it is funny to see little birds visit in the morning and the afternoon. This morning I took time to set up the camera and await interesting results. The wait (and cold) was worth it:

It is a coming and going of birds in our garden at the moment (resulting in a lot of comments from the cats).

Photographing them is hard as they move around a lot.

At home, in the garden, with barbecue weather I notice an ad-hoc network in the wireless networks lists with ssid AMD_IBSS and regularly changing channel and mac address. Anybody got any idea what this is? In other wireless at home news: the neighbourhood has no unsecured wireless networks left, and WEP is a minority.

Two dead young blackbirds in our garden today. I'm not sure what happened, the best guess is that the cats got them in their first flying lesson.

Blackbird with food
I got a picture of the blackbird after a lot of waiting with the camera standby.

The blackbird nest in our backyard is occupied again. Two blackbirds are flying in and out of the place I saw the nest. We were gone for a couple of days, I guess they thought the garden was safe enough. Today we had lunch in the garden and one of the blackbirds was a bit irritated at us sitting in our own garden! ;)

Birds are very active in our back yard. First I saw blackbirds active and thought they might be building a nest. Indeed they were, but when they found out people walk really close to that nest they abandoned it again.

Today I saw sparrows on chimneys all trying to defend their territory.

I don't have to travel very far to try nature photography!

Herfst werkzaamheden in de tuin: we hebben bloembollen geplant en de bruidssluier nog eens stevig teruggesnoeid. De pergola zakt steeds schever, dus dat moest ter voorkoming van echte problemen bij een storm. We hebben van van alles wat we willen snoeien (appelboom, hazelaar, andere struiken) opgezocht wanneer dat zou moeten en het komt toch allemaal neer op 'vroeg in het voorjaar'.
