Jackdaw feeding in my garden......................................... ever the opportunist

I captured this Jackdaw feeding on the suet balls... it was the first time I had seen one hanging off the feeders

   
  Jackdaws have a reputation for inquisitiveness and opportunism.
Lovely birds I see nearly every day on the rooftops... but not that often in the garden.

Linking to Camera Critters and The Bird D'pot

They are beautiful little devils.

Corvids are so smart. They think things through and then go at them. This one has probably had an eye on your feeder for a while, figuring it out.

Great video. Although occasionally I have had a Jackdaaw on the grass, never on the feeders.
