Pigeon with a starling on its face!

By AlexAppleby
Many thanks to everyone who commented and/or voted on my previous posts. Also wanted to say thank you so much to anyone who is kind enough to give me their user award.

This pigeon is looking rather long suffering as its struggle to get to the suet means close encounters with the starlings. The baby starlings are now getting bolder and testing what they can and can't do - not that a massive fail seems to ever stop them from trying again! You've got to love the effort though!

A super moment captured. My garden in covered in starlings and they never stop screeching and squabbling. The doves and pigeons can hold their own against them though, but when the magpie and jackdaw arrive, they all scarper.
