  1. I had not known of this natural phenomenon before! So, it was very interesting for me. And thank you for including information in Japanese 🙂

    • Hi Takami.

      I am glad that You noticed Japanese translations. This phenomenon is quite general in Oulu, but for example in Helsinki, I have seen them very seldom. Same situation was in Mikkeli – rare. Thank You commenting.

      Have a good day!

  3. I have seen these in Satakunta but never thought much about what they could be – thanks for the interesting post! You should write in Finnish sometimes also – I would like to read that 🙂

  6. I have looked at the similar thing on the tree in Japan. This is a plant called a mistletoe. The mistletoe which I looked at may be different from your photograph.

  8. Mistletoe is commonly used in homes at Christmas. A wreath made of it hung above a doorway is a place for kissing. There is even a song written about it – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVIDSGsrWAc

    Comment by Soul Gifts — March 15, 2017 @ 14:40 | Reply

    • Hello Raili.

      Mistletoe is not well known in Finland and kissing … In our trees, we have also Chaga mushrooms and Burles. Christmas wreaths in Finland are not made from Mistletoes

      In this post, my wife shows how traditional Christmas wreath is made:

      Snow and Christmas wreath .

      Have nice day!

  10. I looked it up and learned that it’s a deformity caused by stress brought on by pests or disease, including the mistletoe mentioned above. Thanks again!

  13. First time I have seen witches broom.. at first sight I thought it was mistletoe but looking closer I know it wasn’t for mistletoe is green and leafy. There’s lots of mistletoe here where we live, it even flowers. I saw something new ( thank you)and also read that mistletoe isn’t only for kissing.. who’d of thought of that! 😁

    interesting!
    thank you for Japanese answer, if no Japanese I misunderstand these are bird’s nest

    Comment by kanaconnie — March 15, 2017 @ 17:25 | Reply

    • Hello Connie.

      I am glad that You loved my idea to translate into Japanese. Winds nest or in Finnish “tuulenpesä”, comes from that they are very similar to nest which birds have abandoned after nesting. Many thought that the wind collected some brushwood together, but it is not correct.

  19. Are you aware there is a widget you can add onto your side bar that is Google Translate. Using this means you do not have to write your blog in different languages.

    Comment by Tasmanian traveller — March 16, 2017 @ 00:37 | Reply

    • Hello Tasmanian traveller.

      Yes, I am. Google is not translating everything correct. Many words have different meanings and to select the correct one is important. Usually, I check singular and plural, the word family, the family of the adjective, as well as singular and plural of adjectives, verb forms, when must be used, for example subjunctive or preterite and not to forget syntax. Translation is a hobby for me! Thank You commenting.

      Have a good day!

  20. Me parece una serie de imágenes muy bien hechas y muy representativa de esos nidos que crea el viento. Yo creo que todos hemos podido apreciar en los árboles desnudos estas formaciones que no responden a nidos de aves. Pero también he de decirte que nunca había visto tantos.
    Muchas gracias, como siempre, un placer visitar tu blog.

  25. Hello Matti, I had to take a second and closer look as at first sight I thought it was mistletoe. But there are differences and thanks to your close ups I could see that you were presenting witches broom. ^^ Here in Germany we call them “Hexenbesen” or even “Donnerbüsche”.
    Up to now I have not yet seen them by myself but only in books. Thanks for showing!

    Have a nice weekend!
