Breakfast Of Champions

Blue Jays love peanuts.

The shell makes for a challenge, but the Jays are up to it.

The reward is worth it.

The Jays return time and time again.

Until there are no more peanuts in the feeder.

Ducks Under My Feeder

Recently a pair of Mallard ducks has been waddling up from the lake to pick through the seed pile that has formed from the messy habits of the upstairs inhabitants at the feeder.

They show up in the morning early, stay for a short time and then make their way back to the lake and carry on with their morning tour.

Occasionally they return later in the afternoon for another nosh.

It snowed the other day.

“Good weather for ducks”, doesn’t usually include frozen feet.

Mothering

Yesterday’s Blue Footed Booby turned out to be a mother. When she landed in the middle of our trail, her chick came waddling out of the scrub and we watched for some time as the chick coaxed her to feed it.

After a great deal of begging, the chick stayed hungry. Mom was not cooperating.

Boxing Day Rain

As with last year, it rained on the Christmas spirit.  The birds are used to all kinds of weather and the major thing that they focus on is getting fed.  These Chickadees are busy
