Spotted Nutcracker ~ Tannenhäher ~ Nucifraga caryocatactes

Finally! This corvid is the Eurasian equivalent to your wonderful Clark’s Nutcracker, dear American followers! :-) I had to wait ages to meet one of these guys and boy, they are fascinating creatures. They are extremely stealthy - and uncommon for the “German eye” with their spots and oversized beak - check out the “wear marks” on the beak and the perfect chocolate brown of the eyes and plumage! :-D
