Captured in the village of Saku, just south of Tallinn. Avid North American birdwatchers or even those who put a birdfeeder out for the winter months will recognize the characters on this ball of suet as the chickadee – tihane, and nuthatch – puukoristaja.
Their characteristic shapes, not to mention behaviour, are a dead giveaway. But in the case of the chickadee, which on the eastern shores of the Atlantic is known per British English as the tit; some of its euro cousins got an extra splash of colour.
