I am coming for you Percy

Hello Hello friends and welcome to the weekend!

I have been able to get up to the park twice so far this week to feed the birds. The first time it was primarily for the birds in the lake for this story The Adventures of Ageese - Sanctuary.

The second time it was to capture some feathered friends for this post. This then is my entry to Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo Contest Round 78 hosted by the wonderful @nelinoeva and this week has a FREE THEME

I do like to go freestyle with the birds becuase you never quite know what story will unfold! So let's see how the morning unfolded!


First of all I put down some food on the rocks and waited.

First up were a pair of magpies.

Up one popped and started to eat, I tell you what you don't realise what big beaks that they have until you look at the pictures!

Meanwhile the other one popped onto the bench....

Then hopped off again and jumped up to the top rock

Percy the pigeon decided that he wanted in on the action! He set off stomping like a bulldozer on a mission!

Marvellous Marvin Magpie was having none of it though, and was all set to square up to him.

As usual I have no idea which one photo to enter to the contest but I shall choose this one as my entry as it as it shows off Marvellous Marvin Magpie in stomp mode with his foot raised and a look on his face as to say "I am coming for you Percy"

My entry for the contest 👇👇👇

This let Jessie and Jamie Jackdaw jump in and steal the food!

I shall leave you with this lastthis last photograph as it as it shows off Marvellous Marvin Magpie strutting his stuff having seen off Percy the pigeon!

I hope you enjoyed our little bird story from Beveridge Park in Kirkcaldy Scotland and thank you for visiting.

Percy is such a big pal; their boss in the field. Unfortunately, the birds in our area are very unfriendly.

I would say that the seagulls here are pretty unfriendly, but the pigeons on the coast here are much less assured than city pigeosn. Percy normally flies off as soon as you look at them!

Perhaps they are not domesticated, and acts that way. Animal instinct too. Haha.

Sadly I do not have any birds on my gallery and I'm also too busy with my everyday life so I wasn't able to roam around but maybe in the next contest I can have an entry for those.

To me if something interests you then you do it or learn to do it!
Happy August :)

Your mum sounds lovely 😊

I try to learn as much interesting stuff as I can because why the hell not?
Being versatile and knowledgeable in different things makes one very efficient and I enjoy being efficient.

Happy August to you too❣️

jeje efficient, hmm that is one way to look at it.
I just get bored and like to know everything that interests me.
If it bores me then I could not give a shit, but if something interests me then I want to know everything about that thing so to speak:)
Yeah she had some great wisdom.

hehe those ones are okay, it is the blooming seagulls who have no manners, and will take your snack, heck they would even take a three-course dinner out of your lap!
Thank you Joan and you have a great weekend too:)

I really feel jealous -- you may lol, but I never managed to capture a single magpie! they are so shy (or smart) that never let me come close - even with my 300mm telephoto! probably you've got some other sort of magpies... which are not shy and camera-friendly, lol
a !BEER for you as an extra 😜

lol it may be because I bribe them with food🤣
As a general rule they are quite flighty and do tend to be quite shy, but maybe yours over there are even more shy!
Thanks for the beer:)

oh!... bribe is a good old Russian tradition. generally speaking I hate it, but .... probably I should make an exception and consider your method... thanks! 👍

Yes me too, I don't like it, however if it means I feed the animals and they pose for my camera, I say it is a win win for both of us:)
