Nest boxes

Bird appreciate nest boxes! Common Starling is flying back and forth, seems that bird is preparing nest.


It is nice to watch Great Tits in the morning sun sitting on nest box anvil.


Garden is swarming with life!

Birdwatching in northern Latvia

We were on tour in Latvia, everything went well, just like last year. Weather was fine, and we found so many bird species.


Maris is an excellent guide!


But in the future, if we visit Latvia, Motacilla is the first place we will contact.


Thank you again, and have a great summer!

Birdwatching in Northern Latvia

Ilze and Maris,


On behalf of the Ornithological Society of Pori I express our sincere gratitude about the arrangements of the tour.


The large knowledge of Maris about the Latvian avifauna and recent trends was admired greatly and everybody learned a great deal about it.


The mid-May was perhaps the most beautiful time of the year to visit Latvia, because the leaves were just bursting out on the trees and the fields flowered yellow with the dandelions. The wonderfully green countryside of Eastern Latvia made a great impression to us.


The silent mornings were admired greatly - and the concert of Orioles, Blyth´s Warblers, Hawfinches, Goldfinches. These species are quite rare in SW Finland. The exotic south was seen in the fish-ponds: White Egrets, Black and White-winged Terns, Black-necked Grebes - new acquaintances for most of us. Flight of the Lesser Spotted eagles was of course something to admire.


The Grasu Pils hotel was an excellent choice with an early morning Middle Spotted Woodpecker in the park. It was a lovely idea to visit the goat farm near Cesvaine. The goat sausages were favoured in two ways: some liked it very much, for some it was, hmm let´s say a little bit too exotic.


The arrangements were good, and everybody had a very good feeling after the trip. Many wondered that why didn´t I have been bird-watching in Baltic States before.
