8th December 2014 - King of the meal worms!! by pamknowler

8th December 2014 - King of the meal worms!!

My lovely little robin has just chased away a chaffinch and a dunnock and is now sitting guarding the meal worms!! He is quite aggressive and makes it quite clear that this is his garden and his food. He does have to give way to the black birds and starlings but he chases all the small birds away!!

Many thanks for you lovely comments and Favs on yesterdays shots - very much appreciated as always!!
A massive Fav.

Super capture -- and by the looks of him he has eaten quite a few mealworms already !!I love the look -- as if he is pleading for more ! FAV
December 8th, 2014  
He looks quite luminous - are you sure he didn't eat glow worms!!!!! (Do the meal worms go in a feeder?)
December 8th, 2014  
Lovely shot, they can be quite feisty little birds sometimes.

@quietpurplehaze My garden is on two levels Hazel with the bird feeders on the top in the flower beds. I have sunflower hearts in the feeders. There is a retaining wall and I put the meal worms along that and also in two little bird houses I have put on the wall. The blue tits and great tits all go for the sunflower hearts but the robin and blackbirds love the meal worms!!

@pamknowler

Interesting,,thanks. The birds in our garden ignore the seeds and just go for the fat balls all the time. I shall try meal worms for the robins. ( As long as I don't have to touch them!)

Isn't he just gorgeous, beautiful red breast

@quietpurplehaze I used fat balls until last year when Finlay found a piece on the ground and tried to eat it. It got stuck in his throat and he almost choked!! I managed to open his mouth and push it down!! I really thought he had died!! I will never have those fat balls again!!
