Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I have one of those ground cages Willpar and starlings don't have a problem getting inside it, nor does the squirrel :shrug: . I don't know what type of cage is yours but make sure the mesh size is smaller, maybe that will help :) Talking of starlings ... back in January I mentioned that I have a st...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

Everyone has been very busy in my garden, including myself :nod: . Birds definitely have nestlings because all of them, starlings, robins, great tits, are taking beak full of food away, clearly feeding their babies :bird2: . I saw a blue tit on my hanging basket today, taking coconut fibres from it!...

Re: BLACKBIRDS

I haven't seen my female black bird, the one with the bad leg, since I got back from my holiday a couple of weeks ago :( , I fear something might have happened to her :( . The male is around, comes to eat every day. He is one really handsome guy :blackbird: and he is still single from what I can see...

Re: STARLINGS

Thanks for that info Biker :yes: , its good to know that they are not likely to seriously hurt each other :nod: , I was a bit worried.

Not an April fools, but outward bound on my walk this morning I spotted two swallows over the village. On my way back I spotted one. Three swallows of the new season is not bad.
That is a very good news Willpar, must be a nice sight :clap:

Re: STARLINGS

As I was opening the curtains this morning, I caught a scene of 2 starlings fighting on the ground :eek: . It looked like a vicious fight, and than they all flew off as I opened the door. They are always very chatty, and they have their little bickerings all the time, but I don't usually see them b...

Re: Robin

I saw my robin, 2 days in a row now, feeding the other robin :unsure: . I don't think its a fledgling because the red chest is visible. I assume its a female because the red chest is smaller and softer colour. Is that usual, for robin to feed its mate, away from the nest ? :scratch: There are no vi...
