My name is Marvin and I live in Bielefeld (Germany) currently working as a #sysadmin at a small ISP. I also self-publish books from time to time.

Most of my free-time, however, is spent doing #photography — mostly of #birds and, sometimes, other types of wildlife.

I will mostly be posting photos of birds or other bird-related content on this account, but I will also — at times — post stuff about languages and computers. I post mainly in English and German.

It’s my birthday today so we (well, mostly @psdi 😅) didn’t make cake but bread! First time making bread on our own and it turned out really nice!

One half of the loaf of bread so that you can see its cross section.

We didn‘t end up seeing the Red-Necked Grebe, but here‘s a photo of a Little Grebe trying to feed one of its chicks!

Another photo of the male Common Merganser I saw today. I never know how to take photos of these guys, they’re too contrasty 😅

Does anyone know of a good (preferably free) tool / script that can sort photos into folders for year and month automatically by using the photos’ metadata? Seems like something that should be relatively simple.

Surprise merganser visit! I was taking a walk because I’ve been having a headache and spotted this male Common Merganser at the artificial lake near my apartment.

@JimsPhotos And you hear a lot of them lately! Nicely caught! :-)

On our walk today, we managed to see four Common Buzzards flying overhead! I wonder if they're a family hunting together? I'm not sure. I managed to take a photo of only one of them, the others were too far away.

We also saw two Common Kestrels which can be seen over on the profile of @psdi

Went to visit my parents today and took the train. Saw these strange green disks hanging on the wires at the train station. Thought it looked cool 😅

Anyone know what they‘re for?

Strange day today. 5 degrees C and sun with a few looming grey clouds. These, as it turned out, were loaded with hail ❄️.

Before the hail at Stanwick Lakes I saw only Crows, but after mainly Robins.

Here is one of the Robins (Eurasian Robin). Beautiful Bird.

@JimsPhotos The weather here today is basically the same. Lovely photo!

Here's an old photo of mine that I took shortly after I got my first DSLR in 2016. The Kaiserpalais in the Kurpark of my hometown of Bad Oeynhausen.

Finally managed to photograph a male Siskin! I usually only get to photograph the females for some reason. Such a cool bird.

Terrible photo of a Marsh Tit I saw on the weekend. Not a bird I see or hear much and I have yet to take a decent photo of one.

Edit: forgot the word „yet“.

The closest I’ve ever gotten to a bullfinch — and I don’t have my camera, of course. So here’s a terrible phone picture instead 😅

The place where we saw the Grey Wagtail. They really seem to like hanging out here.
