I'm still lazy and I have a lot to do with gardening and spring cleaning. But I can't do that all the time so I visited the shores of Rapperswil and the Greifensee for birding. Both shores are very interesting for seeing birds and I was lucky to see a lot of them. Curious? See the pictures under the cut!
Let's start with the waterfowl I saw in Rapperswil.
|It was cleaning its plumage.|
|Female eider duck. I really like this photo!|
|A beautiful domestic duck was there too.|
|A white male domestic duck. I think it found its way out of a shelter.|
|A "lion bird" - a great crestes grebe.|
|I found some worms in a pond... Ewww.|
|There were a lot of them. Normally these ducks rest here over winter and leave in spring but it seems that some of them decided to stay here.|
|Cormorants. There were also many of these sea ravens.|
|A heron with a big frog - yummi.|
|Breeding season by family stork. Is there a baby in the nest?|
|Oh my gosh, there live beavers, too!|
