Robins in the Mountain Ash
It is finally cold enough for the seed berries of the Mountain Ash to become sweetly full of fermented juice, ice wine for the birds. The Robins are enjoying these, eating, singing and doing acrobatics on the branches. Perhaps a little inebriated or just extremely happy?
A hearty Ring Neck Pheasant desiring to eat cracked corn, comes into our yard and chases the younger males and several small females away before he begins snacking. He, who is largest, lunches first.
The cats are fascinated with this live show of robins, pheasants and ducks during their daily meal times.
Our cats are always kept indoors, so there is no danger to any birds from them. Birdy TV is their favourite pastime; they love to watch, chattering away though the windows and to each other.
We are all lucky to have such an entertaining view!
