Gulsparv

Fåglar/BirdsPosted by Gunvor 2011-01-15 19:37:40

Gulsparv - Emberiza citrinella - 'yellowhammer' is a common guest at the bird table in winter. These birds are especially fond of oats.

In summer you can hear the male in the fields. His song is easily remembered - he counts to seven: "en två tre fyr fem sex sjuuu" with the stress on the last sound.
