    Default Snow bathing crow!

    This morning I looked out of the window to see a huge black bird - I think itís a crow head down and belly sliding in the snow, sometimes doing itís side and wings too! It looked very comical and carried on with it for ages, thereís itís foot prints and skidding marks all over the lawn Iíve never seen anything like it!

    How lovely - at least someone is enjoying the snow!

    ďMyĒ birds are all very active - and noisy - round the feeders, they are getting through a fair bit, will have to re stock soon.

    That's so sweet we've had a lot of birds on the feeders more than normal, I started putting extra down in an old dog bowl near the feeders but on the floor so the fat wood pigeons wouldn't have to try balancing on the feeder perches which are a little small been filling the bowl up twice a day as there's just so many birds eating here now

    I have a pair of "pet" carrion crows that always turn up every morning for monkey nuts,they sit on the wheelie bins and look in the kitchen window.They were on the roof opposite the other day snow bathing,diving into it and flapping their wings.They even climbed to the top and rolled down the roof over and over.Having fun as well as feather cleaning.I've been topping up all ny bird feeders.I use old foil dishes and melt lard into them,put them out for blackbirds',robins,dunnocks,that prefer ground feeding,also mushy dog food.
