You ca feel it everywhere: spring is coming and this means birds preparing their nest for the beautiful season that is approaching, when small baby birds will be hatching their eggs for a great life or for a stupid seagull waiting for the proper moment. I hardly can wait anymore after these 4 months of gray and cold and the fact that the day already started gaining 1 hour extra of light it makes the waiting bearable.

The trail from Haarlem to Park Zuid-Kennemerland it is occupied by all kind of birds: American Coot, Mallard Duck, Podicipedidae Grebes or Common Gallinule. They are in the mating season and it is interesting to see how the males are fighting for 1 female: there was one female Mallard Duck with one male and the second male came angry to the female, started chasing her and suddenly the 3 of them started to fly away on the canal.

And the green parrots are living in the trees of The Netherlands too, as I’ve seen in many western countries:
