Birds spotted in March
Every year my wife and I are counting the individual bird species we spot each month. Always in the beginning of the year, we reset the list and start over again. Once we have seen a species for the first time in the year, we add it to the present months list. Sometimes we are very lucky and spot a bird we have never seen before. In bird nerd language this is called a life bird or a lifer. In this article I will be listing the birds spotted in March.
List of species
Below you find a list of species of birds spotted in March. All of those birds have been spotted either around our house or just a couple of kilometers away. The list contains of 10 birds for the first month. What we started to do is also trying to distinguish between male and female bird and I have added a couple of images further down in the gallery.
- Mistel trush (Turdus viscivorus)
- Northern lapwing (Vanellus vanellus)
- Eurasian collared dove (Streptopelia decaocto)
- Eurasian treecreeper (Certhia familiaris)
- White wagtail (Motacilla alba)
- Goldcrest (Reglos reglus)
- Great grey shrike (Laius excubitor)
- Common redstart (Phoenicurus ochruros)
- European stonechat (Saxicola rubicola)
- White stork (Ciconia ciconia)
The white storks arrived a little bit later as last year but they came in large numbers called during migration a phalanx of storks.
Find below a couple of birds spotted in March and caught on camera. I usually use a 500mm f/4 lens that gives me enough space between the bird and me and makes sure I don’t distract my little friends.
