The Blackcap likes apples. The male Blackcap has a black cap but the female has a brown cap. Watch the Blackcap nibbling on the apple.
This beautiful Starling is one of the birds that appreciates an apple. Not everyone likes the Starlings because they come in flocks, are noisy and boisterous and people believe they above other birds carry lice. All birds carry lice. The Starlings are bossy and often run other birds away, especially if there are some tasty bites to have. The Starlings that overnight in our garden and adjacent trees are probably well over two hundred and when they arrive in the twilight there is a lot of noise.
The Redwing is very common in Iceland. Most of them migrate to Great Britain during the winter but some stay the whole year.
Watch this Thrush picking at an apple.
A lot of redpolls come to the garden everyday where we feed them sunflower seeds.
