NUTCRACKER (Nucifraga caryocatactes)
The Nutcracker, a member of the crow/corvidae family, breeds in spruce forests and generally is found in Central and Eastern Europe. There is also a slender billed subspecies (macrorhynchos) common to Eastern Russia and Siberia that occasionally migrates into Central Europe. The photos in this gallery were taken on several visits to Arosa, Switzerland in the months January to March.
