Getting brave
This was the first time I'd seen a Jackdaw on the pole feeder so just had to take his picture.

Not seen one there since though LOL

A wonderful colourful and well detailed close up capture you have of this beauty, Delia. A brilliant well lit shot, well done.

What a dashingly smart, compact little corvid, neatly captured with something tasty in its bill. I love that unique pale eye, which gives it a completely different character to any other crow, and it's generally better behaved. Collins says they pair for life, and when perching together "look amorous", which is rather charming. A very nice shot Delia.

Looks like it is enjoying itself with a great variety of treats for it. Maybe it will be back. Excellent close-up D! TFS!
