fine capture Lisl... i have never seen this black bird in Canada....petersmile
Lisl: They are smart intelligent birds, but they descend in some numbers and eat the seed I put our for the small birds
i like the sheen on the head and the breast, Lisl.
Lisl: Yes - he is a very smart bird, Ayush, thank you
Great shot! They're so handsome!
Lisl: And very wary too, Elizabeth - they have been persecuted for years

Mr Smarty Pants!
Lisl: Good name for him, Ray, too clever by half
Look at "little" Jack eyeing you, Lisl. HA! I love it.
Lisl: Yes, he certainly knew I was there, even though I was behind a window, Ginnie

Jack seems a bit tame Lisl. Is this in your garten?
Lisl: It is, Chad - and the descend in hordes, given the chance
Jolie photo, il n'a pas l'air sauvage.
Lisl: Ne is very wary even though he looks tame, Martine

WOW, that is quite the poser, nice and shiny... the ladies should watch out for him....
Lisl: And doesn't he know it!
Magnifique prise de vue ..
Lisl: Many thanks, Claudine
This is a cracking picture Lisl
Lisl: Thank you, Bill. There is a new Facebook Group on Natural History in the Bath Area, so I am trying to capture what I see in the garden for it

haha!! He looks to be a bit affronted that you taking its photo. It looks like it is in the middle of getting lunch ready.
Lisl: Nicking the food from the Finches, Alan

A jackdaw with a seed in his maw.
Great picture.
Lisl: Thank you, Louis - they steal the seed I pit our for the smaller birds
I have a family of these next door, they nest in the chimney pot. They started as two some years ago there are about a dozen of them now, funny to watch and listen to when they have a row!
Lisl: They are comical and intelligent. I'm afraid I chase them away as they come in HORDES
I like its beady eye.
Lisl: He doesn't miss much, Brian

beautiful black bird...
