Afternoon birding 13.11.2012

I was too tired to wake up earlier than 9:45 am.. After breakfast we hit the gym with  Sarina and then was right time to watch some birds.
Weather was super nice, little wind, sunny and quite warm. I started from Lauttasaari and i parked in same parking lot like last time. First bird was Pine Grosbeak again and i had to take some photos of it! Sorry guys for all these Grosbeak photos, but it´s quite rare here normally, so i have to take few every time. (This time i left the Waxwings alone.)

Grosbeak, again.

I continued my walk and soon i arrived at the shore. I did little sea-watch and best bird was adult White-tailed Eagle. Soon i found another of these giant eagles, this time immature bird. Some Wigeons and Goldeneyes were swimming in the sea and Sparrow Hawk flew quite near my head. Hawk had little Crow patrol behind it so it was hurry i guess.
I was walking along the beach when i noticed more Rowan-trees near, i checked those and i found Bullfinches, Black Birds, one Fieldfare, some Waxwings and one Grosbeak again! Here is photo of it, i know you like :)

Black Bird, 1cy i think.

And the Grosbeak, enjoy. 

I walked to the most southernmost point of this are and there was again one Sparrow Hawk. Most birds were Blue and Great Tits and it will start notice that there is less birds every day..

Sparrow Hawk. 

When i walked back, i noticed huge bird witch must be endemic in Lauttasaari!

Boot-footed Oystercatcher! 

Best sighting of the day!
I walked back to my car and then i noticed huge clouds coming.. Nice weather was soon gone and i thought, what i should do.
I drove to the Tähtitorninmäki, where i saw Humes´s Leaf Warbler earlier this year. There was no sunshine when i arrived there but the reason why i went there, was still present.

Little bit better photo than last time. 

Nice Northern Haw Owl allowed me to take few photos. Nice ending for my day.
As you can see, almost same species last time.. Sorry for that, but here´s no other birds.. Without this nice Owl, my day would have been incomplete, so i went there.
Next time i promise some spontaneous things. Let´s see what those are, and when.
Now two night in work and then Finnish twitching society´s autumn meeting. It´s nice to meet some familiar faces.
