Common Bird Census 2012 (A1)

After one years break i am back again north of lake Marathon, monitoring the Birds of the area.
Barn swallow (Hirundo rustica – Σταυλοχελίδονο) was observed in 3-4 points.

Woodchat shrike (Κοκκινοκεφαλάς – Lanius senator) was observed only once.

Common Whitethroat (Sylvia communis – Θαμνοτσιροβάκος) was also observed only once.

Finally and for my surprise Ficedula species were observed three times, Collared Flycatcher (Ficedula albicolis – Κρικομυγοχάφτης) twice and the Pied (Ficedula hypoleuca – Μαυρομυγοχάφτης) once.
They can be abundant for one-two weeks in the April but then they disappear, as they probably don’t breed anywhere in Greece, except maybe from some far north locations.
