956 – Birds

What a glorious day it has been. Barely a cloud in sky, brilliant sunshine and t-shirt weather. We spent a good part of the day in the garden both working and being very lazy..

Whilst we were being lazy, I watched the birds. I’d put the food on the table, and we took up residence on the garden seats. Luckily, the seats are far enough away from the bird table that the starlings are only slightly more paranoid than normal. Pigeons? Pigeons don’t give a fudge where we sit, they just want food. It didn’t take either set of birds long to arrive. Sadly, I hadn’t seen the sparrows for a while. I wonder if it’s the food I’m putting in the hangers.

The first starling arrived. Turns out it was just a tad possessive and didn’t want anybody else to partake. It ran continuous battle with any bird that dared to land on the table. Of course, where it was off fighting with the latest intruder that allowed the other twenty birds to dive in and gorge themselves on mashed peanut, mealworm and mixed no-grow seed.

The great thing is that the birds come and go several times during the course of the morning, which tapers off. Then comes the time of the pigeon. at one time, I counted twelve of them on the roof. I don’t know why they didn’t come down.

The crows were very entertaining, being very brash and noisy on nearby roofs. They’d fly around very fast shouting at each other. Then there was the thing.

I noticed two birds calling and wheeling around the sky. It took a few seconds to realise that one was a crow, and the other a sparrow hawk. The crow was really having go at the hawk, wheeling around the sky. It was most impressive to watch. The crow was very persistent. I think the hawk must have been getting very fed up with the hounding. I gave up watching when they disappeared out of view. That’s the header picture.
