Thanks Karen :-)
It's a combination of a small garden and a long lens Yorkshire and then I crop the image on Elements.

He does, he looks a real bully! lovely photos Muddy, I love to see birds close up like this...you never get up close in real life..well, I don't. I know some people have a wonderful calm and can get them to eat from their hands....sigh....one day! :))

Karen, when I was young, there was a boy in our village who used to go around with a pet jackdaw on his bicycle handlebars...

I've no idea how he did it...

Probably hand reared Karen..oh two Karens

All the Corvids are quite trainable if you get them young...One of the world experts on them is a Scottish woman who rescues them....she was on radio 4 last year.

Is it true that you can teach them to talk, as well, Pim?

You've got enough bovver with a Hyena K..

19 May, 2012

 

Lolol....true, Pim (but I think we could teach her to laugh)!

...just don't mention ducks, chickens, parrots and...guess what now???
...a stone marten.....!! :(

A Stone Marten....Do tell, come on. Easy to feed they are omnivores, Lol aren't all the French.

19 May, 2012

 

Bien sûre, Pim...chickens, ducks, parrots...but they can't swallow dogs...

...at least, not all at once...

...best get the hyena home - asap!!! :)))

Too lazy to go for the thrills and spills of 'road kill' perhaps? Make short work of your fatballs Muddy.

They certainly do Dorjac . . although there's usually a mad scramble among the other birds for the bits that drop to the ground! Nothing goes to waste does it?
