I would never have believed this if I hadn’t seen it.
This was just one of a pair of jackdaws helping themselves to our garden birdfeeder today. Too large to perch on it, unlike the finches and tits it was designed for, the pair of them took it it turns to fly at it and try to pinch some seed before they lost their grip and fell off. I have never seen them trying to do that before. Jackdaws are becoming ever more common around here and have replaced the magpie as the most commonly seen corvids around our house.
