I have some blackbirds and thrushes feeding together in such a flurry. As soon as I put the food out they skim past me and tuck into the bird food – ignoring me in the process. They are united in this urgency. They know with certainty that in two minutes the rooks will be descending.
It’s a case of try and outwit the rooks – placing the bird food in places where they can’t reach.
I’m getting a close up view of these large rooks and they are so large and just have an arrogant look about them. I suppose they know they rule the roost so to speak
I outwit them in the end.
