I saw a really funny thing a few weeks ago- a Buzzard flew across our garden, hotly pursued by a crow, who was squawking at the Buzzard as he chased it. But the hilarious thing was…. a small bird about the size of a Finch flying also in hot pursuit of the Buzzard, just above the Crow- twittering away for all it was worth! They both had the same thing in mind- to chase the Buzzard away, but I couldn’t help thinking- would that little bird have been quite so full of himself without out his large and aggressive “mate” beside him!?
Wish I’d seen it. Wouldn’t it have been great if you’d had your camera with you.
A Buzzard being chased by a Crow! It is often Crows who are chasing smaller birds, so I wonder if he knew what was happening.
I bet it was the high point of the little birds day to join in. But this does prove to me that birds think things out
