There are many birds in our area of Germany. This week we went on several nature walks to look for them. These photos were taken on the trails that wind through the farm fields and wooded areas behind our village.
Did you see two birds in the top left photo? These are European Robins. They look quite different than American Robins because they are actually classified in different families. The European Robin is part of the Flycatcher family while the American Robin is a Thrush.
I think this bird is called a Yellowhammer. The same bird is also in the bottom right photo.
This is a large wading bird. We have seen them frequently in the spring. I think it is a Great Egret.
Storks can be spotted in the area. (This one was spotted at a rest area on the Autobahn.)
Great Tits are everywhere. We see them in our yard every time we go outside. They are so cute with their blue backs, yellow breasts and black neck ties.
If you would like to learn more this is a nice website to help identify the birds of Europe.
