#Sidensvans (Swedish (#BombycillaGarrulus) is a #bird that belongs to the order of #wagtails in the #silktail family. The species breeds in the northernmost parts of #Eurasia and northwestern #NorthAmerica. In #winter it can be observed in large #flocks further south.

In #Sweden, it breeds mainly in the #ConiferousForests of northern #Norrland, but also along the coast of #Norrbotten and #Västerbotten. It has been observed as far south as #Västmanland, #Närke, #Uppland and northern #Småland, and can even exceptionally breed there.

In #Finland, where it is very common, it has been observed throughout the country.

The silktail was first described taxonomically by #CarlVonLinné in 1758 in the tenth edition of his #SystemaNaturae. He described it as Lanius Garrulus and thus placed it in the same genus as the thornbush. Its current genus Bombycilla was described in 1808 by #LouisJeanPierreVieillot.

The #scientific genus name Bombycilla is derived from the #Latin Bombyx, meaning “silk” or “silk”, and cilla, which is Neo-Latin for “tail”. This is a direct translation of the Swedish silk tail and refers to the bird’s silky plumage. Its species epithet, garrulus, means “talkative” and refers to its appearance similarities with the nuthatch (Glandularius garrulus).

#Torneträsk or Torne träsk, Saami: Duortnosjávri Finnish and Meänkieli: Tornio or Torniojärvi, is a lake in Kiruna Municipality, #Lapland, #Norrbotten County in #Sweden, in the #Scandinavian mountain range. Träsk is the local word for lake (in Standard Swedish it means “#swamp”). It is the sixth largest lake in Sweden, with a total area of 330 square kilometres (130 square miles) and a length of 70 kilometres (43 miles). The lake drains to the south-east through Torne älv. South-west of the lake lie the Abisko National Park and the #UNESCO World Heritage Site #Laponian area.

Torneträsk originated from the remnant of a #glacier, which has given the lake its depth of 168 metres (551 feet), making it the second deepest lake in Sweden. It is usually ice-covered from December through June, with variations dependent on temperature variations.
