Thanks for the translation joii. I guess some things get lost in translation though - wondering exactly what some of these are (especially "common jellyfish" and "jellyfish green"):
Bird species that you can see on the transmission from Makova
pheasant grasshopper, pink-eyed grasshopper, grasshopper, grasshopper, grasshopper, thistle-thruster, turf dove, broadleaf, wild duck, hawthorn, blackbird, sparrow, , Common Pheasant, Common Kestrel, Common Pheasant, Common Jellyfish, Common Pheasant, Small Spotted Woodpecker, Middle Spotted Woodpecker, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Common Woodpecker, Common Woodpecker, Great Woodpecker, wild heron, white heron, white squirrel, domestic sparrow, field sparrow, bell green, bellflower garden, dwarf gray, jellyfish green. In addition to the feeders the otters are big.
The woodpecker clearly must have been a Spotted Woodpecker. I didn't see it when I watched for a while last night. I did, however, see what looked like a Eurasian Collared Dove (we have a pair that visits our feeders here - they are an introduced species).
Eurasian Collared-Doves reported in most parts of word. Generally found in Asia, Bulgaria, Europe, Balkan, Germany, Great Britain, Ireland, Turkey east to southern China and south through India to Sri Lanka. Throughout the drier portions of the Indian Umpire, ascending seasonally and locally up to 10,000 ft. in the Himalayas. Two races are recognized viz., the India-Assam-Ceylon decaodo, and the Burma race xanthocyla. Its original ranges are India, Sri Lanka and Myanmar, and also some parts of Asia. Towards the half of the 20th century, the species extended to the rest of Europe, including into the northern part. It was introduced in the Bahamas into the 1970s and in Florida in the 1980s. Since this period, it gradually colonizes the North American continent.
I also watched deer in the distance, through the trees. Oh - and a hand that topped up that very clean-looking basket/feeder - and chucked some items (cobs of corn?) onto the stack of hay.
