Friday at the Flicks - Crowded Bird Bath

FATTHEF

It can get very busy when the brat pack arrives, at least a couple of dozen Starlings all wanting a wash and brush up at the same time. There are a lot of youngsters this year, distinguished by their brown feathers. When one has a bath they all get a shower. As always there is plenty of noisy squabbling:



After a good bath which turns the water from clear to a murky brown they spend time preening in the sunshine.

Have a great weekend observing the antics of the wildlife around you.

    1. TWG: They behave like a group of spoilt brats - always arguing and wanting what someone else has.
