Are You Listening To Me........

By NaturesHaven
Adult starling trying to get some sense into the youngster............they never listen do they...........SmileSmileSmile

We have been so lucky this year with all the young starlings that have been raised around us so I've got lots of images to share with you all........they are noisy and very aggressive birds but the garden would be less of a place without them...........SmileSmile

We've been observing the recently fledged Magpies in the garden today playing chicken with our cats, who in all honesty couldn't catch a cold let alone a magpie, funny as hell to watch though......Lovely image this one...

Your image lends itself to all sorts of amusing captions, Julia, but it's basically the interaction between them and the attitudes that you capture that make your images so interesting.

I agree and when new life is born for the next generation of bird species to take forward to next year-its somehow special. Nice captured moment and great caption. paul
