Nature in a suburban backyard
what is he, I can't tell
Oops! Sorry about that. It's a very big raven. There are three, perhaps four that visit on a regular basis. Fun to watch too. Only one can eat on the platform at a time - the others have to eat on the ground. It's quite a trick to land on the feeder. Unless the big bird comes down very softly like a helicopter the platform will spring wildly. Swooping in from the side simply tosses the bigger birds off the other side. Only one of them has mastered this trick.
I can never get a good shot of our crows...they are very careful birds, always on the look out for threats.
