the feathered squad

Summer is here and many guests choose to enjoy their meals outside this restaurant at Sveavägen. Not surprisingly, they are soon joined by quite a few of our feathered friends. See more?

These guest are the lucky ones. They don't have to pay for their treats!

For having a "bird brain", they hang out at some pretty good places.

Nice bird shot. You know I'm partial to our feathered friends. :)

According to an informed source this is a junior Black-headed Gull. I would hardly know a sparrow from an eagle so don't quote me on this! ;)

Steffe: Right you are. A seemingly infinite supply at no cost.

B Squared: Yep, these fellows are clever.

Halcyon: I know you are and I'm happy to announce that we've got more feathers in store for you.

Thanks for joining our ornithologist session!

Here we have sparrows and pidgeons doing the same in town. This cute one looks much prettier.

Cute shot of a nice little fella. Seems these uninvited guests like to eat a la carte.

Jacob said...

What a nice-looking bird...the only ones that bother us trying to eat outside are poopy pigeons!

Vogon Poet said...

Very good shot. Only pigeons try this here, when not scared away by killer seaguls.

Pia K said...

Just adorable! If they wait until I've finished my meal I'm all for sharing with the birdies!

Tinsie said...

That's a strange-looking bird!

TACK Per! Jag hade ingen aning om vad detta är! Men tonåringar bland fåglarna kan vara knepiga. Har haft fågelbok o kikare med mig i Conca dei Marini. Upptäckte att fiskmåsar inte finns där, de som jag trodde var fiskmåsar var gulfotade trutar, yellow legged gulls, det var väl min stora lärdom på denna alltför varma resa... Så din fågel o mina i Italien är väl släkt på håll...

For our next feathered shot, we'll offer more action.

JM: Well, cuter now... I've got one of the parents coming up... :)

Buenos Aires Photoblog: They know what they like and they're sure to get it!

Jacob: There's a considerable amount of poop around these tables as well, I'm afraid.

Vogon Poet: Interesting that you should mention killer gulls...

Pia K: One thing's for sure - these guys don't wait until you're finished. I saw them successfully competing with lunch guests who were still sitting at their tables...

Tinsie: He's a junior, we've been told. Before winter he'll be wearing a different, feathery costume.

Lena Johansson: Så ambitiös du är, släpa runt fågelbok och kikare i värmen. Fast, som sagt, min expertis är närmast obefintlig så lita inte för mycket på mina art-teorier.

Thanks everyone!
