[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Life for animals in nature at the time here in Central Europe is very difficult because of snow (60 cm snow in the city) cuts them off from their natural food sources.
So I have arranged a feedlot for the birds in front of my house and I hope that they will be grateful and in return collect the caterpillars from my cabbages in summer ... ;-)

In my photo you can see some long-tailed tits (Aegithalos caudatus)
They are a restless species, constantly on the move, and they are very skillful climbers even on very thin twigs when searching for insects and other small food items. Except of the breeding season they usually are found in flocks of up to thirty individuals - as you can see here.

Hallo Frank,
das ist ja eine Freude auch hier die süßen Schwanzmeisen zu finden.
Unglaublich, wie sie in einer Traube am Riesenknödel hängen, vielen Dank und herzlichen Gruß
