I heard all this commotion coming from the garden, when I looked out the conservatory window we had 5 Starlings all fighting for the food at my feeding station, and boy where they going at it.
To try and explain what I have done with my feeding station to help with my photos, I found a dead branch in the woods behind my house, with that I attached it around the hanging feeders, this is then used by the birds to perch before dropping onto the food and hopefully give a more natural and eye pleasing photo, you may see the same branch with a different bird on it come up a lot in my future posts.
You will see what I mean when you see the starling pictures below, the 1st two pics show the starling on a feeder and the 2nd two with the Starlings further up the branch. Good idea I thought.
Photos taken with Nikon D70 + Sigma 170-500mm lense.
