Another Saturday, another morning coffee in the morning, and another sighting of my butcher bird friend. Only he is not showing butcherbird tendencies any more. Has my bird-feeder domesticated this Fiscal so much that he is becoming a seed eater rather than a scavenger, a vegetarian Fiscal if you will. Food for thought.
Haven’t been here for awhile. Not that I have forgotten about blogging but just havent been out birding for awhile. Just wanna let you know the bird feeder is still up but its been so windy the birds have been blown of their perches a couple of times. Newest additions have been a pair of House sparrow juveniles. They come with the adults and are fed from feeder directly into the mouth of the juvenile, no more adults fetching the food. See the White-rumped Swifts are out in force over the swampy reed patch this morning too. Other notables of the morning have been the Hadeda’s, Pied Crows, Rock Pigeons and now even a Cape weaver too. No sign of the waxbills at the feeder tho they flitting about over the reed beds, and here comes the sparrow family again. And one waxbill made an appearance too.
Enjoy your birding in the New Year.
