show me a photo (of a bird) - jackdaw

in Feathered Friends2 months ago (edited)

The photo I took today. A young jackdaw walks on the first spring grass ... and looks for food, carefully avoiding piles of dog poop.


More frames from the set:





At this moment his collegue had appeared.



I am really curious to know, what nutrition they are so passionately search for?..

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!

Hi @qwerrie . Perfect shot . Using a telephoto lens?

not at all. I own a telephoto 70-300 (pretty ordinary) but left it at home.
it was a little family walk today, not a birding hunt. I took 150mm macro telephoto with me (wanted to shoot some buds on the trees blooming). so, this is shot with a macro lens! (and I also captured some nice ducks, as well).


That's amazing. I'm waiting for the next photo. It's the right time for the weekend with the family. Happy weekend. 😍

They're feasting on that poop! If they get hungry, they should come to where I live, they'll find plenty of that kind of food here! 😁 Good shots! I haven't seen those kinds of birds here.

oh! you dont have jackdaws?.. (and what about pigeons?) this is a trivia, me thinks. if you dont have them, maybe you have smth more beautiful, I am sure!

Jacdaws like seeds and invertebrates. But they will never say no to the cats biscuits. ☺.
Lovely shots, please remember to put your link.

i think there are not much invertebrates yet. maybe, they find some maple seeds that were fallen from the trees last autumn?

Thank you very much!

Ohhhh cool, like them. Maybe they are having a nice bite of 💩 😂 Just kidding. Insects I would expect they are looking for.
