Приметы весны: поёт большая синица
Spring 2015. Observe the behavior of great tits
February 11, 2015 in Moscow turned out to be the day, it is appropriate to the approach of spring phenological characteristics. It was the first thaw in early February: sunny and cold day, the air temperature -10 ° C. And a bird in the center of Moscow near Arbat sang with might and main, which is confirmed by the questionnaires . But then the weather became worse, although the temperature did not fall below -5 ° C, and there were also zero temperature, but it was overcast, maybe that's why tits silent. February 15 had a truly February day. The air temperature was about -5 ° C, but due to a fairly strong northwest wind seemed much colder. Was a heavy snowfall. Time begins the blizzard. Within half an hour the sky was clear of clouds and managed to make quite spring pictures, but the birds were silent muffled.
All while walking on the bank of the Moskva River I have not heard a single bird. And near the house, I discovered that our tits keep quiet and lean on seeds in a manger.
