Birds of Sweden

Like squirrels, birds are something that I was only mildly interested in before moving to Sweden. The nature here has inspired my wife and I learn about, find and photograph much more, especially over the last few months. Most of the winged species here are the same as the UK, but there are a couple of minor difference. Long-Tailed Tits are all white on the head, Crows are the larger "Hooded" variety and Nuthatches are a little more pale.

Since working from home during the pandemic I get visited by Blue Tits (Blåmes). They come into my office window, so of course I started putting out food for them... then they come way more. What was I supposed to do? I'm sure this one (above) is saying thanks for the fat ball :).
