GrünlaubsängerAfter excellent observation chances for the Greenish Warbler (Phylloscopus trochiloides) – or Gruenlaubsänger in german –in the Siegerland on the edge of the state of North-Rhine Westfalia in 2012, now even more observations in Germany are possible. Whereas the indivudual in 2012 could be seen on the 10th of June 2012 along a stream near a retirement home in the center of the town of Hilchenbach (427 asl), now the reports are from Friedersdorf in the municipality Heidesee in Dahme / Spreewald (LDS) just 50km south-east of Germany´s capital Berlin.

Grünlaubsänger in Brandenburg

GrünlaubsängerIm Juni sind praktisch alle heimischen Laubsänger in Brandenburg angekommen. Die ersten Vögel haben ihre Gesänge schon wieder eingestellt. Da ist dann die Freude groß, wenn es doch noch aml etwas Neues von einem Laubsänger zu hören oder zu sehen gibt. So wurde in Friedersdorf in der Gemeinde Heidesee im Landkreis Dahme/ Spree (LDS)wurde ein Grünlaubsänger (Phylloscopus trochiloides)  festgestellt. Bei der ersten Feststellung am 16.

Summer observations of Greenish Warbler in Germany

Greenish WarblerAfter excellent observation chances for the Greenish Warbler (Phylloscopus trochiloides) – or Grünlaubsänger in german –in the Siegerland on the edge of the state of North-Rhine Westfalia in 2012, now even more observations in Germany are possible. Whereas the indivudual in 2012 could be seen on the 10th of June 2012 along a stream near a retirement home in the center of the town of Hilchenbach (427 asl), now the reports are from Kaltenbronn / Gernsbach near Rastatt in the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg and from the north of Germany from the “Alter Botanischer Garten” in the nice city of Hamburg. There is also one individual in the gardens of Goyatz at the Schwieloch-See north of the Spreewald. All observations were first recorded for several days ago. Thus, the birds have obviously established on their locations – at least for some time. For more information about the current locations all over Germany see ornitho.de. The best site to look for this eastern breeder is probably in Hamburg (9°59’10.52″ E / 53°33’33.47″ N). It is obviously a male, but some observers assume that more than one bird may be involved in the sightings. The best place is on the lake in the “Alter Botanischer Garten”. The bird moves a bit in the area but Continue reading Summer observations of Greenish Warbler in Germany
