A song thrush has learnt to feed from our hanging feeders. Has anyone else seen this behaviour? I have photos but as I’m new to posting here, I’ve no idea how to upload them!

In reply to Mark W:
We've had blackbirds attempt similar scenarios from our feeders, but probably the best and weirdest attempts we see, are wood pigeons flying up to a feeder, flapping their wings to maintain balance while trying to feed!
See this video I uploaded a while back; Wood Pigeon stealing from the feeder!
