More garden corvids .............
Jay has spotted something he's not sure of .... probably a rival Jay as we have two pairs in the garden !
My boy "Earl" who will wait patiently for you to chuck out his favourite treat of Peckish seed and mealworm nugget chunk or if really lucky a piece of cooked chicken !!
who's a pretty boy then ? lol
on a mission to reach the nugget before the magpie does !!
talking of which, this maggie is always on the sneaky prowl for stray mealies !!

Lot to learn
A bit distant, but my 1st hooded I think? On hols at Loch Linnhe last week
In reply to HAZY:
Beautiful photos, Hazel. Earl striding out to get his treat made me smile. I think Jays are still my favourite out of all the the corvids. I think it's their eyes that do it for me.

Just in case you wanted confirmation then, yes, it is a Hooded Crow. I haven't seen one since I used to go walking in the West Highlands where they are pretty common.
Here's a quick pic through the window of the glamorous Mrs Earl the crow .....

the Jays are a bit miffed now that whole peanuts are off the menu ...............
