Brief Summary

Read full entry
Reed buntings have a black head and white 'shawl' in the summer. You can then find them singing while perching in the top of bushes or reed. This is how they define their territory. When sensing danger, the bird races lower down. In the Netherlands, reed buntings can be seen the whole year round just about anywhere where there is reed. Some of the Dutch reed bunting population migrates a short distance to more southerly regions in the winter.
