Willem (Noord-Scharwoude, Netherlands) on 26 July 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Vrouwtje zit op eieren en mannetje voert het vrouwtje met vis. Hier verlaat het mannetje het nest.

Female is sitting on eggs and male is feeding the female with fish. Here the male leaves the nest.

La femelle est assise sur des oeufs et le mâle nourrit la femelle avec du poisson. Ici, le mâle quitte le nid.

Très joli petit oiseau bleu
On pourrait presque penser que le nid est fait de feuilles mortes (il doit l'être de boue séchée peut-être) ?
Merci de ces explications
