Waldenbuch, Germany — Ritter Sport Museum
Here’s the area by the Ritter Museum where I was seeing all the birds. I walked to the end of the lane and then started back.
A small bird landed on the wooden fence on the left, about 25 feet from where I was. It was a Black Restart, slate blue-gray overall with a black face and breast and a bright rufous tail.
It was content to perch there and observe me observing it.
I saw several more the next day in Murren, Switzerland, including a male sitting on a cross on top of a church and a female that actually sang a little bit from a roof edge.
