Got Those Thieves On Camera

I see them with my own eyes all the time but finally I caught them, on camera, stealing. They are watching for the dogs to turn their heads so they can fly down and grab the food, then fly and put it somewhere else for later. Roscoe does not like the birds taking his food.

Me too and I am glad it turned out because I took this one from inside the living room.

@andriaperry I take most of my Cardinal shots from inside too, they aren't real 'people-friendly'

Once Tony watched one bird take the food out of the feeder and lay it on the ground, then when Tony said " hey" the bird did it faster, lol.

@andriaperry You should see our the magpies look around and then they look at my window before starting to grab the food. They are funny.

We used to have mourning doves stealing the cat food and then sitting on the power line and leaving a mess all over our vehicle. Now the birds leave the cat food alone, but the raccoons eat it instead.

We have chicken in our organic garden and all they do is eat our tomatoes all the time. So now I moved some of the plants to my house so I can have tomatoes. Tired if throwing them to the birds.

@andriaperry Have you ever tried to use all your old CD's and tie them up in the tree. I do this and it keeps the birds out of my food I grow. For the chickens, I had to put up some wire fencing around the tomatoes in order to keep them out.

It seems it is so cold in your side as the snow is available. Why the birds didn't fly to the south to avoid the winter? It is amazing that they can survive from the frozen winter in the north.

@andriaperry Your country is very large and therefore I don't quite know all of the locations well. I know CA is in the south but I don't know Alabama is the same.

With all the variety of birds that I've got here @andriaperry , when I put out cat food for the feral cats, you can bet the birds are having a feast.
