|Some of the birds!|
What has happened? There are more and more birds. Never have I had as many as ten butcher birds and three magpies (two are young ones) waiting for me at the back door. When I opened the door two flew inside the house and one crashed several times on the windows before finding his/her way out.
This morning there was a lineup of lorikeets - I seldom feed them, mainly because they poo everywhere. Clearly they do not have strong muscles around their anuses!!!
Still, I'd fed the butcher birds this morning - on the left over mince. Maybe it is the mince that appeals to them!!! Still how did the magpies know?
In any case I know they stalk me - they site on the rails outside the window. Sometimes they will sing to me, perhaps to entice me out with a handfull of mince, and sometimes they sing as I feed them.
I do love them but I think I'll stop for a day or so - they seem to be getting too demanding.
