A couple of winters ago we tried pinning fat balls to the garden fence for passing birds to peck at. Then along came this big old rook from the nearby rookery. You can see what will happen next. And it did. No sharing here.

Caught in the act! Excellent capture!
Thanks, Marina 🙂
They catch on quickly, don’t they! NO SHARING!
I think they do!
What an interesting crow. They are so smart. I was watching Ellen’s Game of Games last night and one of the questions was, “What is the smartest bird?”. Of course it was the Crow. Escape artists and very clever. Great shot. I will add this to the roundup that I did this morning. 🙂
Thank you, Lisa. The corvid family are so smart.
Yes they are. 🙂
He’s a big chap! The corvids and starlings love suet.
He has a don’t mess with me look in his beady eye, doesn’t he? What an attitude!
Mine, all mine!
With a beak like that, sharing isn’t mandatory. Nice thought, though 🙂
He comes well armed in the beak and claw departments.
hee hee they are such clever birds!
I’ve taken to hiding one in the forsythia outside the sitting room windows – only the small birds are daring visit it!
A cunning plan, Becky.
Very smart birds.
They certainly are.
