The Forest Feeding Station #1
The Forest Feeding Station #1
Welcome to Tweety's Diner! I felt the urge to present you to the former abandoned, nowadays prospering, feeding place the 3 Wise Old Birding-men started up, long time ago. Hakan and I have bought one new feeder, plenty of seeds and a few suet-balls (that keeps vanishing without a trace in NO time) and quite a few filled cocnuts to keep this place back up and running. If you follow me through the next (boring) pic's of dark, winter forest stilleben's, I'll guide you to what happens where. As you can guess from A) the habitat B) northern winter forest and C) very seclusive place, there is not that many birds living here in winter. Nonetheless the place were soon teeming with a lot more birds species than I first thought it would. I mainly started it up to get photos of the Crested Tit, since I know very well they're certain here. How I knew that? Because I saw them on suet balls here, maybe 8 years ago, when I happened on that place by pure chance. How that happened? I was biking along that cul-de-sac road (ending up on a closed bridge over Fyris Creek; closed for landbound traffic not the boats) on my way to Nedre Foret (means the Lower Balloon-lake, or something like that), from Kungsangen (The King's Meadow). Maybe 100 meters after I left the birding tower at Ovre Foret (Upper Balloon-lake) I noticed tits flitting over the road, from the alders and willows growing along the creek and into the coniferous forest on the other side. I also heard the typical call of the Crested Tit. That suffised, I stopped, parked the Mountain Bike, gripped my bin's and clambered over the steep low slope on the other side of the ditch. Weaved through a thin curtain of wild roses, aspens and birches and came into an almost-clearing. From a wire nailed from three large trees, forming a triangle, hung small seedfeeders and suet balls. Some homemade woodish feeders of different sorts and two makeshift benches completed the scene. I stood gaping. I returned a few times over the years, and one time met one of the old men who told the story of the making of the place. Since this is quite a way to bike, and winter time usually is tricky for bicycles, my visits has been more infrequent than the place deserves. Thanks to The Red Pearl (my Toyota Corolla touring -98) it's less of a chore getting here, loaded with seeds and stuff! Oh, that fallen Spruce? It has fallen during the 5 year period when I wasn't here. It was one of the cornerstones for the wire holding suetballs. It has, in stead, created a great shelter for the feathered guests. These grounds are not free from Accipiter predators... Sunnerstaasen vid Ovre Foret, Uppsala Sweden, Feb 13 2008. Posted big.

We had just finished our amazing ride on Arawana which happened to literally end in the parking lot of a winery! SWEEEET! So, we bought 3 bottles white wine and rode down a sweet, narrow ribbon of single-track to the beach! PS - look for this photo in the 2009 Penticton & Wine Country Visitors Guide as well as on their website!
