I was a bit late putting out the bird food this morning. The grated cheese goes down well with the blackbirds.
I was putting the food out. Most of the birds flew away, but one blackird kept perched on the fence really close to me.
I looked straight at the blackbird and realised I was missing a good photo opportunity.
“Where’s my camera?”
“Where’s my camera” I asked the blackbird
The blackbird kept looking at me
“Where’s my camera when I need it?
A robin appeare and perched close to the blackbird. If it had been Christmas it would have been a Christmas Card moment. The blackbird was sitting still on the fence, but the robin with a lovely red breast was hopping on the fence.
“Serves you right for NOT putting out our bird food early enough. We are both starving. No time for photo opportunities now – it’s cheese time.”
So I put out the bird food and left.
The same thing happened to me a few months ago. But I can’t carry my camera with me every time I put some bird food out.
