It was definitely a case of trial and error. This wood pigeon was far too big and heavy to perch safely in our little crab apple tree AND snaffle the apples. Various approaches were attempted. Finally the down-under manoeuvre did the trick. Success!
Today Becky is using her magic crystal ball to do some conjuring.
This week Lisa wants to see ‘butts in the air’ bird life.

Thats a great image. Upside-down. 😅
It was an amusing interlude 🙂
Superb image and very clever on the bird’s part:)
They’re canny creatures, pigeons 🙂
There is always one that eventually figures out a way – brilliant capture
It’s wonderful watching the acrobatic feats of the birds trying to snaffle a snack. Magpies are so intelligent, you can see them working out how to make a move on the suet feeders, and often succeeding, even when upside down!
The corvids are so clever.
Great caption as well!
Upsy daisy! 🙂 🙂 A charming capture.
Not a big pigeon fan, but I love the shot. I saw several birds performing similar acrobatics in search of a berry good breakfast this morning at the Preserve. Alas, my photos didn’t turn out well, but I enjoyed watching their contortions.
They do provide a lot of entertainment.
I hate pigeons, but this is a good shot, Tish!
Not very keen on them myself, but I liked the acrobatics.
That is a wonderful photo and story. You can tell that bird is too heavy to hold up to those branches just from the angle of your image. Love it! 🙂
Cheers, Lisa. Thanks for up-tails prompt.
You are welcome and thank you for your awesome photo! 🙂
