I was surprised how close I came... or should I say how close to the way they were foraging?

My favourite Auk. Much cooler than Puffins. 😀
Dieter Waschbüsch
Thank you! They are so gorgeous! Haven't seen many Puffins yet but Black Guillemots always amaze me. Their disply is fantastic and they're incredible sweet. If I have something like a favourite bird it's gonna be that species!

He's now back in his breeding grounds. Loves to have a few twigs between him ans me.

Cheeky. Whatever they do in that duck pond. Would be a surprise if there's big fish.

The common gull is not so common in Dublin. They mix with the smaller black-headed gulls which are much more abundant.

Well, everyone knows that Crows like this Hooded Crow (Corvus cornix; why the hek is this species not in the list?) are really smart. So was this guy: He observed that my wife Annette'accidentally' dr...View More

Hi Dieter. We have investigated your issue finding the Hooded Crow (Corvus cornix) in the species list. It seems as though this is due to you profile using Birdlife taxonomy which considers the Hooded Crow to be a subspecies of the Carrion Crow (Corvus corone). If you change your default taxonomy to...View More
Dieter Waschbüsch
Thanks a million for the reply! I'll see if I find these settings. So it's still unclear whether the Hoodie is a subspecies of the Carrion Crow or a species on its own? I thought I read somewhere (possibly Wikipedia...) that some genetic analyses figured out they are indeed separate species.
Chirp Team
Hi Dieter. IOC and Clements both consider the Hooded Crow (Corvus cornix) to be a species. It is only Birdlife that still considers the Hooded Crow a subspecies of the Carrion Crow. The IOC and Clements normally make updates on solid evidence (e.g. genetic as you mentioned) so it is probably just a ...View More

That beautiful Whimbrel was ignoring me laying on a rock pretty close to him. At some point he was very close and I started to move a bit for a better position. Only slightly hurrying he walked away ...View More

This common tern was angry against a rival. There's a small tern colony at the grand canal dock that's largely unsuccessful. Last year it was raided by scumbag-kids who wanted to swim there. The old b...View More
