Birding with a France / Paris (very important brasilian!!) 21st of July 2007

This Saturday morning, at 6:45, we have picked up our guest Dimas Pioli, from Brazil and drove to Fontainebleau forest to watch some birds.

The forest is at 70km South of Paris = one hour by car

We arrived at the parking of Plaine de Chanfroy before 8:00, and we watched our first birds and first lifers for Dimas!

Crested tits first, were very active, and a cooperative middle-spotted woodpecker was a nice bird in the scope.

In an open area, we had a nice pair of Dartford warblers, some melodious warblers, common stonechats, a female of common redstart and many Bonellis warblers.

A green woodpecker was foraging on the ground, and a black woodpecker was flying over the pine trees.
We had a good surprise with this flying wryneck!!! (one of my favourite birds!)

A few minutes later, we had a lesser spotted woodpecker and many great, blue, long-tailed and coal tits!
Chiffchaffs were singing all around and a single willow warbler.

On the Plaine de Chanfroy, we had some wood larks, singing yellowhammers and we missed a red-backed shrike.

Two Eurasian honey-buzzards were new lifers for Dimas!

After this we had a short visit to a hide near Sorques and had a few new birds like common terns, common sandpipers, and little ringed-plover.

Not so bad for the season!
