As I have kept on feeding the birds, I have been noticing that a family of Jack doors have been coming back and forth to feed in the garden.
They are mostly feeding on my fat ball feeder (which I stuck to the fence so it didn’t move). As the juvenile cries for food, the adults are taking huge chunks of fat from the feeder.
Here is a picture of the young Jack door, which my Infra red camera took.

  1. It reminds me of a cross between the grackle and crow here in the US. That's very cool you have an infra red camera!

  2. Hi Findlay! I'm visiting you from Australia after reading Drews blog post. Love that you have made yourself a blog too and that you enjoy birdwatching with your Dad so much. Great photo of the Jack door, and how fabulous that you have an infra-red camera there. Keep bird-watching and blogging! You're doing just great!

  7. Hi Findlay, I've just followed the link from Andrews blog.

    Welcome to the land of blogging. I look forward to reading many more of your nature experiences and seeing your photographs. You're doing great so far, keep it up and good luck...[;o)

    One thing you could do though is please remove that dreadful word verification. Thanks.

    2. Hi Finlay. To turn off word verification go to your blogs dashboard..select options and settings (little box with down arrow)..select posts and comments and set word verification to NO...also you can set Comment moderation to Always that way you can see what comments you have before you publish them.. you can also set who comments to Registered User (these two settings will help to stop you receiving spam comments on your blog...hope this helps..[;o)

  14. Findlay, me again.
    Another suggestion for you.
    Go to your dashboard, and in the 'Design' section you should find an add on for 'Followers'.
    Add this, then people can follow your blog more easily.
    :-)
