The Redwings are here

The first migratory Redwings (Turdus iliacus) were seen in gardens in Selfoss and groves in Grímsnes today. This afternoon ten Redwings were here in our garden, eating bread, apples and sunflower seeds. There are always some Redwings that stay in gardens during the winter time but the newly arrived birds can easily be recognised from the others. They are full of excitement, flying quickly from one garden to another in their search for food.

Skógarþröstur – Redwing – Turdus iliacus

Since snow covers everything these newly arrived birds have to depend on feed in gardens like the ones who stay here in the winter time.
