Chickadees and a Finch
I have some more bird photos from the Jura (Wild West of Switzerland) – today it’s three different Chickadees / Tits and a Finch. Here are the links to the fourth Tit and another Finch from previous posts.
The biggest of the common Chickadees is the Great Tit (Parus Major – Kohlmeise):
Also a rather common one is the Blue Tit (Cyanistes caeruleus – Blaumeise):
and pretty obvious why it’s got that name:
There are several brownish Chickadees and normally it is the Marsh Tit (Poecile palustris – Sumpfmeise)
This photo of the European Greenfinches (Carduelis chloris – Grünfink) is not too good but it shows nicely the small differences of the male on the right and the female:
