Default The most unusal bird on your feeders

I have just heard of someone who is lucky to have Linnets on their feeders. So I am sooo... jealous, and pleased for them at the same time I could only dream of having visitors like that. It is all down to luck if you get them in your garden or not.

The most unusual bird we have had has been a Yellow Hammer, and a male and Female would visit every day. They loved the seeds dropped by the other birds onto the floor. The male bird was stunning and very yellow to look at.

One day we went for a walk and we saw a flock of 50 plus of Yellow Hammers sitting in a tree nearby. They where unmissable and quite a converstaion piece to any bird discussion anyday, and it still is a good talking point. They seen to congreagate at certain points of the year and that is what they do come together as a flock.

In our last rental in a rural area, I woke up one night and went to the kitchen. I looked out of the window and there was a Tawny Owl sitting on top of our bird Table as still as he could be. It was a fabulous sight to see

I think he must have been lying in wait for Mice, Rats Shrews and Voles (plenty of those around).

It was an honour to have him there. It was creepy, and like something out of Hammer Horror. Anyway he was only a Tawny so he was welcome in our lives anytime.
