Friday at the Flicks - Song Thrush, Grey Squirrel, Nestbox

No apologies for another Song Thrush video. Every day as the light begins to fade a Song Thrush sits at the top of a tree close to my back door and tries to drown out the song from the Blackbirds:



A Grey Squirrel has become a regular early morning visitor trying to find any left over seeds from the previous day:



The remaining four chicks in the Great Tit nestbox continue to thrive and are growing rapily:



Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.

  1. The Chaffinch outside my van enjoyed this Flick. He's still singing for all he's worth.

  2. I enjoyed all the flicks John. The GT chicks look like they're doing very well and look much more mature than just a few days ago.

    You can never show too many Song Thrush videos for me. They never fail to cheer and amuse me. It always seems such a random set of sounds, more like the bird is chattering or experimenting with new calls rather than singing. I find it endlessly fascinating.

    Hope you and Penny have a good weekend and that the weather is kind :-)

    1. Jan: The way one keeps climbing out of the nest it won't be long before they fledge.

      Some of the Song Thrush song I can't hear, the beak moves and sometimes there is a very faint high pitched sound, partly old age I guess.

      Hope you are all keeping well and manage to get out on the warm sunny days.

    1. It is very varied TWG. That's why I decided to make a longer video. I only stopped when a helicopter came over drowning out everything.

      The little ones must be nearly ready to fly now.
