Blackcap

Sylvia atricapilla

Description:

Sorry, I know pics are not of highest quality, but here I had to shoot quickly and through a screen of grass, behind which I was hiding while observing these two beauties. These are typical Old World warblers, uniformly grey, small and lively birds. Here, for once, I managed to get pics of the two together, female - pic N° 2, with rusty reddish crown, and male (pic N° 1) with black crown.

Habitat:

Seen in shrubs growing on bancs of a small stream, flowing on edges of a lowland broadleaved (oak and beech) forest, in Geneva lake valley.
