The Eurasian Blackcap

The Eurasian Blackcap



Sylvia atricapilla
Passeriformes – Sylviidae

This dullish bird does not come often to feeders but I see it once in a while when I go for strolls in the woods.

Ce n’est pas un oiseau qui vient facilement à la mangeoire mais il m’arrive d’en croiser en promenade dans les sous-bois et c’est bien plus difficile alors de les approcher pour les photographier.

Here is a male perched on a red oak branch with a creeper. This first picture is severely cropped.

Voici un mâle perché sur une branche basse de chêne rouge américain avec une liane comme décor; cette photo récente est fortement recadrée:

A female I met during another walk in the woods this summer; she was curious and tried to analyse me!

Fortunately, when the birds have not raided the bay bushes, I can fix a branch on the feeder and sure enough Blackcaps will appear briefly:

Heureusement, quand les oiseaux n’ont pas encore fait la razzia dans les petites baies, je peux mettre une branche sur la mangeoire et les fauvettes font alors de brèves apparitions:

I live in France at the present, but have lived in Africa for 16 years and in the U.S. for 3 years and with Australia in mind for the future. With my husband, I created and managed a Bird Park in South Africa, raising mainly psittacines; the breeding facility housed over 1000 parrots at any given time. My photography is about sharing fauna's beauty with other enthusiasts! Equipment: NIKON lenses: 300 mm F/4, 80/400 mm, 500 mm, 200/500 mm, 800 mm f5/6E,
