[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla) is a very common bird in our region and you can always hear their very typical singing.
Now the first young have left the nest.

It is a robust typical warbler, mainly grey in plumage. Like most Sylvia species, it has distinct male and female plumages: The male has the small black cap from which the species gets its name, whereas in the female the cap is brown. It is a bird of shady woodlands with ground cover for nesting.
This small passerine bird is partially migratory; central and northern European breeders winter in southern Europe and north Africa, where the local populations are resident. It is hardier than most warblers, partly because it will readily eat small berries as well as the more typical warbler diet of insects.

Bonjour Pierre,
Une image intéressante et vivante. Techniquement pas parfaite, mais je préfère des images imparfaites mais qui suscitent l'intérêt. Adorables les petits qui regardent leur mère avec une attente évidente.
Bon après-midi
