In A Rush

Coombe Country Park
Black-billed Magpies


I believe these birds are Magpies.  
Last weekend I spotted this mad rush
for food that had just been put on the trunk of
a nearby tree at Coombe.  In seconds the food was gone.
I did not expect to see those blue feathers.

Too, too gorgeous Lauren, beautifully shot here.. I'm curious as to what food they put on the tree, was it honey?

Grace - I think it is something like lard & seed mixed into a paste the Rangers slaps on the tree. I will try and find out.

Splendid birds - anybody who says that they are just black and white has never had a really good look at one!
