daughter came back to her van today to find a robin sat on the worktop,sat looking at her , not bothered, none of that mad panicky flapping about you usually get with birds. sent me a pic of her picking him up to put him out , totally calm. soon as she released him , he flew back into the van , and sat there looking at her. odd
We have fed a pair of Crows in the Country Park for years now. Because of the hard Winter, I have been taking wild bird seed for the small birds and spreading it about. For the last 10 days, a Cock Pheasant has been waiting for us to turn up. He is at the bird seed within 30 seconds of it going down. There is also a cheeky Robin who is not as tame as in Nigels story but he makes a racket to let you know he is there. I put the bird seed on top of a couple of fence posts for him.
Thatís what I do put some seed on fence posts nearer the window the robin waits on the garden for me to fill the feeders and we have a few goldfinches and bullfinches, we have a Cock Pheasant that comes into the garden but makes a racket when heís finished feeding! Always feed the birds especially in this cold weather we feed them all year round we donít put nuts out in the warmer weather though!
i agree on the feeding , but i've never seen a wild bird happy to be picked up - fat litle bugger too !

My mums friend was told she couldn't have children. She was in her garden when a Romany lady called by & tried to sell her some flowers & clothes pegs.
While they were talking, a sparrow flew down & pitched on her pinafore, it stayed there for a few moments & flew off, the Romany looked at her & said "Oh, you're pregnant" my mums friend told her she can't conceive, but the lady assured her she was & even knew she would have a girl!
2 months later it was confirmed!
Strange or what.
