Recently we received a blackcap at the centre. A quite distinctively male warbler with grey body feathers, brownish upper parts and a black head (females have a chestnut coloured head). These small birds feed mainly on insects during the breeding season. The extra protein is necessary for the egg-laying and rearing of nestlings. From July they switch to fruit, in particular berries, as the sugar helps them fatten-up for the migration.Add a comment
[EN] It was really nice to see so many people at our event on Clean Monday! A lot of families came with their children, but also some other people, curious to visit the center or just really eager to taste our cooking skills. We released one buzard, we showed around many people and a lot of them were really happy to be here, in the wild!Add a comment
[EN] I had to come in Greece to be finally able to meet a pelican face to face. In the center, we got two of them on the last 2 months (not at the same time, thanksfully!).
The first one I met was really impressive! He was quite agressive, and you couldn't got closer than 1,5 meters without him trying to attack you with his beak.... And that's quite an awesome range! Gladly, a lot of Drasi greek volunteer already had handle those in the past, so I was releaved that I did not had to catch it myself.Add a comment
