Please, do not hamper a young bird's life by picking it up, and taking it home with you. It is calling its parents to help them in locating it.
After fledgling from the nest, the parent birds will keep feeding it, and look out for it, until it will be able to look after itself.
And the reason you cannot see a parent is because of your own proxomity to the young bird. And while you are ebating if or not you should take the bird home, you keep the parent from giving it well needed nutrition in the form of a meal!


The photos on this blog are all taken by me. If there is any picture you might want to use for any other than personal use, please drop me a line to the email address shown in the sidebar on the right.

A different kind of game

one of my Rooks was inviting me to a game today. At first his face came through the Fennel (shutter too late-as you can see) and soon we came to get involved into a game of hide and seek, Corvid style-which holds in more or less-We(the Corvids) eat as much as we can while you try to capture our face while it is bobbing up and down whilst feeding. And of course, a Jackdaw had to interfere too.
I was trying to upload yesterday's bay photos, but never had a chance! So those will come tomorrow.
And as usual with new games, it is the other who makes up the rules, not me. besides I was never told about them. It was the way the Rook was looking at me, which challenged me. Well, judge for yourself. Here's just a few images of today's session
he had the top spot in the planter and somehow I think he knew that behind the wall separating us, I was stirring grinded peanuts and a lot of other goodies into the suet for their peanutcake.
