Friday at the Flicks - Garden Bird Visitors, A Modern Scarecrow

A bit of a dearth of new video at the moment as the birds are eating less from the feeders during this mild spell and the dull grey skies are not conducive to clear photography. Anyway here are some of the birds which came to eat this week.

Coal Tit
Great Tit, Tree Sparrow, Male Chaffinch, more Tree Sparrows

 Something I have been meaning to video for quite a while is a bird scarer / modern scarecrow which seems to do a decent job on a local vegetable patch. It doesn't really show well on the clip but the 'head' is made up of different sections some of which are holograms which really glitter as it turns round in the wind.

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.


  1. Thanks, the Starling is wonderful. As for the scarecrow. Whatever will they think of next.

  2. Hello Adrian. Starlings can really glitter with the right angle of sunlight. Pity they are such quarrelsome little darlings.

  3. Nice to see your busy bird table, John :-)

    Especially like to see the Tree sparrow. Spotted two Starlings arrive here the other day. With no food out they didn’t stay.

    Love that scarecrow. It a different material it would make a very spooky Halloween decoration in a garden!

  4. Hello Shirl. It is great to see the Tree Sparrows return.

    With some spooky lighting the bird scarer would be a great Halloween decoration.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
