Eurasian Siskin

The Eurasian siskin is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae.

The genus name Carduelis might derive from the Classical Latin word carduus meaning “thistle”, referring to the birds’ feeding habits, although some authorities think that it may be derived from carduus, a now-obsolete name for the European goldfinch, Carduelis carduelis.

The specific spinus is from Ancient Greek spinos, a spiny plant, possibly referring to the bird’s call. The English name “siskin” is from an older name for the bird, sisike, of imitative origin.

Eurasian Sparrowhawk

The Eurasian sparrowhawk (Accipiter nisus) is a small bird of prey in the family Accipitridae which also includes many other diurnal raptors such as eagles, buzzards, and harriers.

The species breeds in woodlands throughout temperate and subtropical Eurasia and parts of North Africa, and it is mainly resident, but some birds disperse more widely after the breeding season, or in winter. This species is the smallest of the true Accipiters, typically small and compact with short, broad wings, and a long tail.

The male is blue-grey above with orange-barred underparts and the female is brown above with brown-barred underparts.

There is a pronounced size difference between the sexes, with females being up to 25% larger than males.

The female is sometimes referred to as a “hawk”, and the male as a “tiercel” (from the French tiercel, meaning male sparrowhawk).

The Eurasian sparrowhawk is mainly a bird which hunts woodland edges and clearings, although it will also hunt grassland and other open habitats. It specialises in catching woodland birds, especially songbirds, and is highly agile in flight, dashing through dense vegetation to catch prey.

It will sometimes hover on beating wings in the manner of a kestrel.

The Eurasian sparrowhawk tends to take species much larger than itself, as well as smaller birds. Its plumage provides excellent camouflage, and most birds only become aware of its presence when it swoops on them.

Once a bird is captured, it is usually dispatched by a bite to the back of the head. The Eurasian sparrowhawk breeds in woodland areas and gardens, building a stick nest in a tree, or less often a crag, laying 3-5 eggs which hatch after 28-32 days. This species is widespread and common across its range, although it is not found in the treeless regions of Eurasia.

It is not considered to be a threatened species by the IUCN, and is classified as of Least Concern. The population is estimated at 1.2 million to 2.3 million pairs, however, the number of birds killed on roads appears to be increasing.

Conclusion

I hope you enjoyed reading about all the birds with the letter “E” as the fist letter in their name. If you are interested, I have many more posts about birds in the wild and in your backyard here on my blog.

Maybe you are interested in birds beginning with other letters apart from E?

See my other posts on birds collected according to their starting letter here:

Any known bird species with “F” as their initial letter.

All birds with “G” as their first letter.

Birds starting with a “K” in their names.
