Voracious Eaters

Sometimes, I wonder where on earth do the food balls go that fast because this weekend I placed 6 pieces of bird food balls and then by Monday, it’s totally gone! So, yesterday I bought a pack of balls again and put it on the feeder. I know and I’ve seen before that small birds eat those kind of food but not in that rate. Imagine, only 2 days and it’s gone!

Then yesterday also, my hubby suggested that I take pictures of birds from the window. So, that’s what I did earlier today. At the same time, I wanted to find out how many birds come and eat on the feeder.

Behold, the Eurasian Jay birds! They are bigger than the Eurasian Blue tit (blåmais) birds that I usually see here. No wonder the food is not enough but I’m glad that our humble backyard is attracting beautiful birds though.

Swan Lake

Last weekend we were at my friend’s wedding and since the reception is a bit far from where I live, we’ve decided to rent a hotel room in Sandnes for one night. We could have also taken the cab home but the taxi fare would cost the same as the hotel room rate.

Anyway, the following day I showed my bf Sandnes Brygge since he had never been there before. From there we found a big group of swans.

This is not a lake but it is a small river leading to the sea. However upon seeing this, I couldn’t stop playing Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake in my head.

If I’m not mistaken, there were 30 swans in total. But only 26 are in the water. The remaining 4 are on the land.
