Winter Birds - Wintervögel

Here are a few snaps of blue-tits (Blaumeisen) and great tits (Kohlmeisen) on our garden feeder today. It has been the first heavy snow-fall of the year, and they looked as if they really needed the food.

I'm not forgetting the ground-feeders either. Here's a juvenile black-bird (Amsel) finishing off a pile of porridge oats:

We went for a walk in the woods and I also spotted a greater spotted woodpecker (Größere Buntspecht) high up in the trees. Even at a distance the bright red belly was very noticeable.
