Wild life breakfast

Our ornamental pear tree is one focal point in the corner of our garden. There are pea nuts and bird seed feeders hung from the branches.

We can watch our visitors from the window.  They range from a family of squirrels, pigeons, song birds, magpies and occasionally a Jay or two!

The squirrels arrive first and chase each other over the tree having come along the fence from the local wood.  They take their turn to hang down from the branch to get the nuts.

The song birds arrive for the seed and scatter them over the ground.   The fat pigeons try to get either the nuts or seeds by flapping their wing to hover by the feeders but give up and sweep the ground for the seeds.
