The High Flyer

I was barely able to spot it with my eyes, but my trusty Canon Powershot SX30 got much closer to this big bird flying high above. I’m not sure what exactly it is, but it could be a Kestrel or Turmfalke since they’re know to be nesting in Mülheim’s church towers.

Balcony Birds II

I think the Blackbirds have realized that my balcony is a very safe place to build a nest!

Balcony Birds

They have literally taken over the balcony – they really built their nest in a secluded spot! Unfortunately I can’t take photos of it easily, but from time to time they buzz around the balcony looking slightly surprised that there’s a human living there too.

Collecting the Nest

This is a bit blurry because this Blackbird was sitting in the Maple, but it shows very nicely how much nesting material they were lugging around a couple of days ago!
