I found a dead sparrow under the hanging feeders this evening. :( There was a small amount of blood in his neck area and a few feathers near where I found him. Current thinking is that he was the loser of a fight. :detective:
Aw no :( , that's so sad :(

Re: COLLARED DOVES

This gorgeous thing is the latest addition to my garden visitors, a juvenile Collared Dove, fledged not long ago by the looks of it :flying:
It made me laugh to see it earlier chasing off a much larger pigeon from its food spot :fence: :laugh: :love:

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

There was another similar SH attack today :( . Everything was normal, when all of a sudden I heard this loud thump which made me jump :eek: , and saw that it was a wood pigeon that flew into the glass door, clearly in panic. At the same time I heard a starling crying and SH holding it on the ground...

Re: LONG TAILED TITS

I was totally in awe of the bunch of these beautiful little birds that found my feeder today :clap: It was a bunch of them, around 10 maybe, hard to count as they move so quick, and I think they are juveniles :D Couldn't get a good picture of them, these are the better ones: https://i.imgur.com/CIbO...
