Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

I spotted this starling few days ago, but wasn't sure if I'm seeing it right. It has only one leg :( . I've seen them before with leg injuries/bad legs but this one's left leg is missing completely! https://i.imgur.com/rU4As3u.jpg It seems to be a female, and its very mobile and active, adjusted well.

Some new ones here also. Landing on parked cars on the chain of the fence, on the ground allover.
One landed on top of a wood pigeon here :laugh:

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

they like having their bath, which makes them slow flyers. I believe I read somewhere that they bath so much and very often because it helps them get their feathers oiled up and conditioned, so they fly easier. Happy to report that I believe we are over that screaming phase here :D , thank you Lord...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

My starling fledglings have discovered a bird bath, which makes them totally not able to fly as their feathers are not properly oiled yet, its stressful :hyper: . There was no casualties today, but that's bec...

Re: WHAT I SAW TODAY.....

Another day another magpie attack! :hissyfit: :wife: This time I was quick enough when I heard the screaming and when I looked outside the magpie was on top of a fledgeling, I screamed and shooed him off :grumpy: . The little one was running for cover unsteadily, and I could see that it can't fly, j...

Re: ROBINS

My poor bald Robin was collecting mealworms for his babies I guess, as he was taking them away. I managed to film him just for a few seconds, its not the greatest video but his odd looking head is visible with feathers missing at the front of the head. Hi is acting totally normal though, which is a ...
