Anybody that have experienced a Norwegian winter knows that they are dark and cold, but compared to other countries at the same latitude we have fairly mild winters. Thus there are several birds that stay in Norway during the cold season, but when the temperatures drop below -20 degrees celcius they feel the pressure. Luckily some people feed them during their time of need. This weekend we witnessed a “few” mallards fighting for their bread in one of the few ice free areas near Oslo.
Their numbers were astonishing, and so were their ferocity. Another picture
