Mixed flock

Thursday, December 03, 2020

Not much to see on some days, the drab outlook on grey days can be so dreary. I did want to talk about the birds I see out and about because some of them change behaviour over autumn and winter. Smaller birds you might find in your garden make delightful little nests in spring in the hedge and take up residence in bird boxes. Over autumn some of them club together with others to make a mixed flock who travel around with the benefit of safety in numbers. Apparently, it's also a good arrangement as they have different ways of feeding and food they seek out, so it's not a direct competition, more a complementing of skills.

There's something we could learn from them...

 Take care,
