This pair was very entertaining for a while. It is mating time for them too. I was surprised when I saw one of them lift up the tail in the same fasion as wrens do. 
If you look closely at the last image you see two birds. The one to the left is the same as the bird that is landing in the image above.

A few of the Robins stays in Sweden during winter and so do Siskins. The grey wagtail migrates and they have been here a few days. This pair just decided for a place to nest. I think I know where.

We only see this bird during migration. They breed up north in Antarctic. They only make a short stop to gain weight in my area. 

I love the graphic look of the male and the female is cute.

I went to the forest feeder and the lake yesterday. At the feeder I noticed great spotted woodpecker, nuthatcher and a female Eurasian Siskin. At the lake most ice was now gone and replaced with graylag goose and lots of coots. Spring IS here!
