New Year’s Eve in South Tyrol

We spent the beginning of the new year in South Tyrol, Italy and had few opportunities to take some bird photos. The abundance of overwintering songbirds in the region was amazing. Blackbirds, Robins, Chaffinches en masse, some Fieldfares, Song Thrushes, single Blackcaps and Dunnocks amongst others were filling the bushes around Lake Kalterer See. A highlight was an encounter with Europe’s smallest bird. A male Goldcrest (Regulus regulus) enjoyed some afternoon rays of the sun in a hedgerow, posed fearlessly at extremely close range and even showed the male’s diagnostic feature, the vibrant orange center of the yellow crown stripe.
