Misstle Thrushes which have been visiting us for a while know, they love crunchy peanut butter in fact i'm sure they become addicted to it.
I feel very lucky to have such a variety of lovely birds coming everyday, costing me a packet but its well worth it.SmileSmile
Thankyou all for your time c/c on my last upload, its done better than i thought it would so big thanks to allSmile

This a cracker Shaun.

They can be a very aggressive bird, when their food source is threatened.

I still have vivid memories, from a few years ago of one of the parents, seeing of a Grey Squirrel, who was trying to snatch the eggs from the nest.
In fact one of the birds is way back in my PF somewhereWink
