Do they have a rota BB, lol??

Funnily enough Dawn They wait for the boss,usually one of the oldest before coming down.Then they wait til he has eaten his full before coming down in twos ! Pity humans arent that courteous lol.

Great looking bird. I always always thought it was rooks or crows in the trees near me. Only discovered they are jackdaws since joining GoY!!

Yes,we keep on learning from each other on here dont we.

I am stupid - I just asked on another photo if you get rooks. Sorry.

I suppose this is where the phrase of "pecking order", comes from, lol.

oo, scary bird but they are clever.

Yes Ams I rather like them , interesting when they land dont seem to scare other birds despite their size. If a Jackdaw arrives though others scatter, think this due to their nest raiding habits.

Jane even had me hanging up a rind of a roast joint in a tree for them lol.

11 Jan, 2009

Good Grief...., he's downright wicked looking, isn't he ?! He's a crafty looking character . Great shot !

11 Jan, 2009

 

Aye they get a bad press but live in highly organised social groups have a very strict pecking order .When its foggy and misty and they collect in the trees above the old chuch its soooooooooooo spooky as Jacque would say.

Jacque they even eat my cooking left overs - strange theres always so much of it when I do it !

11 Jan, 2009

 

Sounds like someone's dropping a subtle hint, and is trying to get out of cooking duty to me...lol.

12 Jan, 2009

 

I chuck Out Food thats left over 2 Jane ,Remember My Over Cooked Rice Pudding LOL it lasted the Birds Days lol :)

12 Jan, 2009

 

NooooooFlc ! Jacque...will never forget your over cooked rice pud lol

12 Jan, 2009

 

I would imagine we think of them being spooky because they tend to be shown in horror films, hanging around grave yards, crowing ... or is that crows, lol. Like The Omen, wooooo

12 Jan, 2009

 

Their quite like gentlemen Dawn..wait for each other to feed in turn.Admire their guts in the face of adversity.!

12 Jan, 2009
