Redstarts

I got to know this troll in the lichen-covered pine woods of Roslagen. Now that I live in Skåne it’s the no 1 garden bird, entertaining us with their nice “Pewit-tick-tick” calls as we build our garden house. Their chicks recently left their nests, hung around as long as their parents fed them, and then went on to get to know the world. Our hammer beats are left to make the background sounds on their own.
