While I love this blog, I now pretty much only write on my other two blogs: BirdingBlogs.com and 10,000 Birds - I would love to see you there!

winter birding and Christmas time in Tirol

I know, I know, I haven't written anything about birds or birding in ages. I have actually been doing quite a lot of birding recently - quiet walks in the forests, and snowshoe tours in the mountains. There are very few birds about, but the stillness and beauty of the forests makes for a lovely time.

Hopefully, I'll get back in to it in the next few days - there is plenty to talk about (always is when you are interested in birds...).

Had a Golden Eagle pair circling between Zirl and Kematen, over the River Inn the other day - spectacular sighting with the pair soaring tightly together (and dwarfing the Common Buzzards that were about). It was really special to see them just a few hundred meters from our house, and all the more because they were right in the middle of the Inntal.

The Eagle Owls (Uhus) should start displaying soon, so I will probably spend some bitterly cold evenings up in the mountains nearby looking for them.
