Observations through my window

 Some quick drawings done recently with the aid of my telescope just looking out of my window.There was a huge flock of Fieldfare thrushes feeding on the berries but suddently they all gone. A female sparrowhawk landed on a Pine tree nearby and stayed for a while until it was discovered and chased away by the crows.. Also a  wood pigeon which was sitting on the top of tree and stayed there for at least 15 minutes. Wood pigeon are the biggest wild pigeons in Europe and though a common in many Western european cities, it was uncommon in Munich until 2009. They are everywhere now but still not as common as in the norhwest , and they are very shy
