Following are some common birds that appear on our feeder during winter. The small balls of feathers are so cute, but also so difficult to photograph.
A couple of years ago we have visited Valencia, in Spain, a city with many cultural treasures and rich history. Interestingly it is not only preserving the past through architectonic, literary and art jewels, but it also nurtures its future with modern buildings and attractions. One of them is the Oceanographic, the largest complex of its kind in Europe. The park is divided in 10 areas, with species from all around the globe, including not only fishes, but many other species such as birds and mammals.
Some interesting, but normally rather shy birds decided to pose for me, and then its just to squeeze the shutter button gently. The first couple of shots is of the Common cuckoo and then its the Common crane.
