Balancing Act

Such fun watching the big fat wood pigeons trying to reach the sunflower hearts in the feeder. I will give him points for trying as he did manage to get quite a lot of the seeds. The funniest was when he overbalanced completely and fell off the pole. Finlay was watching all the activity with great interest.

Many thanks for your lovely comments and favs - I was delighted to see my little robin on the PP.
Pigeons are comical, but very determined to get to the food

Such a big bird, its no wonder they overbalance! Your bird food must be a very popular variety!

Great shot. We used to have one that sat in the hanging basket to reach the feeder.

Excellent. Now this is what I'm trying to get. I'll check out your exif and give it another try. :)

@novab you need to set your camera to takes as many FPS as it allows. Then as soon as the bird twitches fire away and I am sure you will get a flight shot. Good luck!
