Common Crossbill (Boys Grave, Forest of Dean)

The Common Crossbill has been on my blog before, but it looks better than the other one. This bird is so meticulous at feeding. He would go to a place where there is a pine cone, take it back to where he'd been the last time, and would eat the seeds from the cone. After which he would drop it. I hope that it doesn't drop it on somebody head!
This he will do it for a long time.


  1. Never seen these before Bob. Interesting feeding behaviour.

  2. Yes Keith, it is a strange behaviour. It is worth a few minutes of everyone life.

  3. Well taken Bob, they are hard to see, let alone photograph.
    Well done.
