I do like birds and we have plenty of birds of prey around here, I've seen owls with dead squirrels in their talons and the other day I was on one of my runs and inadvertently cornered a hawk with something it its talons. I startled it and he attempted to fly away, but the weight if its prey prevented him from gaining altitude quickly as he flew towards me; I literally could have kicked him as he flew past me.

I also feed vultures carcasses and then bury the bones in my compost.

Max is a gorgeous old dog. I dont7 know that he is jealous of the bird climbing up my leg Becky but he certainly gets his nose out of joint if we fuss over another dog. A neighbour bought in a 10 week old miniature poodle whom we all loved. We gave Max a close up so he didn't feel left out. He growled and snapped so we didn't do that again. My daughter in law spoke for him...."How can i compete with that!!!":mad:

Common Tailorbird.
This is a regular visitor to the garden and found all over our city. During the nesting season [April-August] they grow slightly longer tail feathers. This was taken in a July [2011] evening when it perched on the garden arch and I was trying out the new Canon - 250mm lens.
