"Talgoxen retains its place as the undisputed king of the bird feeder while gråsiskan for the second year in a row entered in the toppstriden. Also koltrastarna seems to be more than usual, according to the preliminary results from this year's census of birds."
"For the fourteenth year in a row, the association has, Birdlife Sweden, urged the Swedish people to count the birds at the bird feeder, and report to the annual vinterfågelräkningen. The bill will continue during Monday, but a preliminary reconciliation Sunday evening pointing towards a record participation."
" We are very happy that there are so many that have reported so early. If this continues, and that you can never really know, then point it out, that there will be a new record for us. It can perhaps end up being up against 25 000, " says Niklas Aronsson of Birdlife Sweden."
"A contributing factor to the increased interest can be the facebook group Birds into the knot, with the link to the Birdlife Sweden, he thinks."
"– We increase by 10,000 to 15,000 each year and it is very much focus on vinterfåglar into the corner."
"What stands out this year is the blackbird, sparrow and the redpoll, says Niklas Aronsson. It has been more blackbirds than usual, and the house sparrow have continued upwards after the previous reductions. Gråsiskan is a invasionsart which in some years appears in large numbers and as in previous years, it is in the third place."
"the Greenfinch slopes slightly and is in the eleventh place, to ninth last year. Species low in second on the list in 2007, but the disease gulknopp has hit the population."
