European Blue Tit [blåmes]

In our woods, it's the wrens who are the first to alarm there's a cat on their turf. Then, the brave blue tits fly in to take up a close surveillance. They don't call it off until the cat is safely returned inside our house. Hedegärde, Uddevalla, on October 27, 2015.

Winter Wren [gärdsmyg]

They make such a fuzz when we take our cat for a stroll in the woods, the wrens. And while they keep an close eye on us, they are so difficult to photograph. Hedegärde, Uddevalla, on October 27, 2015.

Great Tit [talgoxe]

There are not so many birds left in our woods, but this great tit will stay for the winter. It will be well fed when it gets colder. Pic by A. Hedegärde, Uddevalla, on October 23, 2015.

Common Goldeneye [knipa]

A molting goldeneye, turning his more graphic side to the audience. Henån, on October 17, 2015.

Common Wood Pigeon [ringduva]

In one sense I guess this is a rock dove. Its white neck gives it away, even at distance. Skår, Bokenäset, on October 16, 2015.
