Bird Brain?

By Jmag60
When this pidgeon found the tray empty of seeds it found out that it could reach the “mother lode” as the three photos show! I often wondered why that feeder was constantly needing filled, I watched this bird for half an hour and it would not give up its food supply for anything!

I do like pigeons. They're so resourceful. I too have one of those trays, and like your pigeon, mine also sit in them (and usually poo at the same time). Smile

I've amended my feeder so the pigeons can't reach the seed dispensers, they now only get what falls to the ground.

Great sequence John. An unfairly maligned specie, just have an appetite like locked-in humans but never do social distancing. John
