hihihihi sorry, no. :):):):)

No idea then... Does it have anything to do with gardening, taking care of the garden?

A photo taken today - what are those birds called (in Polish or English)? :):

No, of course not. First of all, what can you see? And what time is it?

Yes, I tried to find it but to no avail. I am not an expert on birds. :):)

@pawian, you and all the bugs of this world?

No mosquitoes this year is enough - other bugs are pleasant creatures which I don`t mind. .

Don't tell me that you've managed

Of course I did. She had craved doing sth crazy for a long time. And I am the perfect person to provide crazy entertainment. hahahahaha

@johnny_reb, nope, Yellow-winged Tanager doesn't live in Poland. A pretty bird too though :)

OK, a hint then - those are young birds and so their head looks different than that of adults. The head of an adult bird is very colourful. Those are one of the most colourful birds in Poland :) They have the same wings as adults though and that bird in the photo higher on the right has a very characteristic pattern for those birds on it's wing.

Another hint - they're smaller than sparrows.

And I am the perfect person to provide crazy entertainment. hahahahaha

;D I'm sure you are ;) I hope she enjoyed it, doing something crazy from time to time is good for the soul ;)

European Gold Finch

Bingo!! Well done! :D 🎉🎊🥇

In Polish it's called "szczygieł" :) Adult males look like this:

That was a good riddle and nice bird. I heard the name many times but never saw the bearer.

@pawian, so now you'll know how to recognise one if you ever see it :) They come to the garden in the morning and in the evening.

Thanks, I didn't know that!

Something easier this time (at least for Poles, I guess) - what is this beauty?? ;]:

Yes, of course, broad or fava beans. Paulina eats them with the liver of her enemies, plus a glass of nice Chianti. hahahaha

Broad beans?

Yes, of course! :)) Boiled broad beans, to be precise. In Polish called "bób". In my family fondly called "bober" ;) All my family loves it, me included :d We don't eat it as a meal or part of a meal, but more like a kind of a snack. I peel the skin and eat them without it, but there are people who eat those broad beans with skin, especially if they're young. Young broad beans are delicious (when they're green and springy inside) :)) You can tell the young ones apart - their skin gets wrinkled after being boiled. The older ones get floury and I don't like them then that much.

Indeedly, haha ;D

Yes, I do it coz it is healthy and quite tasty.

The older ones get floury

Yuk, indeed.

In my village they also call it that. Amasing.

They look nothing like the American Goldfinches however.

Interesting :))

Btw, I've always enjoyed helping my grandparents to hull (? - to remove them from their pods) broad beans after harvesting them - there's something satisfying about it :))

And what is this all about?:

While my kids hate it. They are strange. :):)

I known but let others guess.:))

Nobody tried to guess??? Amazing. It is a pot with soil to produce seedlings of veg or flowers. Those sticks support delicate plants, probably the pot is kept outside, on the balcony.

Also, those sticks have another function - they protect the plants against pidgeons which might feel like shytting into the pot. But why not??? Natural fertiliser is the best!!!
Paulina 13 | 3,767

@pawian, your second guess is correct. It's my mother's pot - she put those sticks solely to prevent pidgeons from sitting there and making a mess by throwing the soil out of the pot. It's the same pot where the pidgeon mum layed the egg from my pidgeon egg riddle :) Somehow she managed to lay the egg in that pot despite all of those sticks being there. I don't how it was possible. It's a mistery. Those sticks were inserted very densely. It must've been a pidgeon-magician or sth :)) Amazing :)))

Every magician has pigeons, so there must be also magic pigeons.🕊🐇
