Feed and Fly!

I managed this sequence on Sunday after a sharp shower. I’ve mentioned before that the behaviour of crows and magpies fascinates me. The crows descended on the outfield and began their hunt for worms. There’s that old theory that stomping on the surface attracts the worms to the surface so it seems to me the drumming of rain has a similar effect. That must be why the birds arrive as soon as the rain relents.

What I’ve also noticed is that when a crow finds a morsel that they protect it at all costs. So, as soon as they pull the worm free they hop away or get airborne while gulping down their prize. No, these birds don’t share easily.

This sequence was shot in only a few seconds on rapid fire… fun!
