This is Pete, a dear friend of ours. If he spent his summers and raised the family in an English-speaking country, his name could be for example Phil, Phil the Finch, or perhaps Charlie the Chaffinch. I will tell you more about him in another post.
Almost everybody loves blackbirds (ours is Turdus merula), especially because of their lovely, fluted, melodious song. They have become more common where we live, which doesn't make me completely happy, since they eat (a lot of) our friends earthworms.
I have already posted several photos of squirrels. (Sorry!) I like the tender light and colours of these pictures. Click to enlarge!
Most of the photos of this post have been taken through a window. The timid whooper swans move quickly away if I go out and try to get closer.
This is how a Finnish spring morning looks like. :)
One of our squirrels looks slightly wet too.
Some brave flowers can already be kept outdoors...
... and inside the home a pink pelargonium is blooming.
