Bird Watching Notes [Jan. 24th, 2014|12:35 pm]
Tony Grist
For two days running I've had to refill the new bird table around midday.

Nuthatches are aggressive. They'll dart at anything that lands on the table while they're feeding. All the other small birds defer to them. It's that rapier-like beak that does it. They're the musketeers of the small bird world.

Blue tits use their claws to hold larger items of food steady while they nibble.

Species seen this morning at the front of the house:

Blue tit
Great tit
Nuthatch
Robin
Pigeon
Greater Spotted Woodpecker
Dunnock
Chaffinch
Blackbird
Jay

I'm particularly pleased about the Jay.

We have a pair of jays nesting at the back of us in the wee copse of woodland.

Handsome birds.

Exactly. This is the second time I've seen one round here in the past eight months.
