Robin, Erithacus rubecella
Greenfinch, Chloris chloris.
Pff. keeping that other male off MY food was hard work!
The Greenfinches are definitely very bossy on the feeders, these days
Male Chaffinch and Great Tit, Parus major
Coal Tit, Parus ater
Female House Sparrow, Passer domesticus( right)
Blackcap, Sylvia atriciapilla
My Duunock, Prunella modularis
Chaffinch, Fringilla coelebs
Rook, Corvus frugilegus
Most of my Corvids(Rook, Jackdaws and Hooded Crows. Plus some Magpies) are not very happy with the new set-up at the kitchen feeding station. They have difficulty flying to and landing on the little mesh birdtable, almost tipping it over, where the pole not tied up.
Another, large, birdtable is supplying the Collared Doves, Streptopelia decaocto, the Blackbirds, Turdus merula. And anyone else who comes along.
LEAVE YOUNG BIRDS BE!!
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!
