Nature – Birds and Animals

Here are some images of various birds and animals seen around Norway, with most from neighborhoods in Oslo.

This cat I saw in the Fornebu neighborhood was huge (with an attitude to match)

I love the wings of this swan in the inner fjord in the Sørenga neighborhood

This young cow in Buerdalen was soaking wet, and looked miserable, on a grey and rainy day

A seagull flies low enough over the rippled Oslo fjord to cast its reflection

A cat from the neighborhood was waiting in the bushes near one of our bird feeders – use caution my feathered friends

Various water birds, including a shag, are perched on a fog-shrouded Selskjær island in the Oslo fjord

A young pig in the straw at Søndre Aas Gård, a farm in the suburbs of Oslo

The back view of a bokfink (or chaffinch) on a path in the park surrounding the Royal Palace in Oslo

This cute colt was born the morning this pic was taken at Søndre Aas Gård – happy birthday, literally!

This duo of wood pigeons is nesting near our house and are often found perched on this ugly light pole
