Food, Glorious Food!

Our topic for today is food. Or rather, the food the birds like.

The Kestrel from above caught some insect, then flew to the top of a pole nearby to consume it. Just look at her eyes...

The farmers were preparing the fields for the next season, and the Egrets were very excited, looking for insects that became suddenly exposed.

The Grey Heron like fish, and are incredibly efficient at catching it. Once they open their wings they're a particularly glorious.

Other notable fish catchers are the Kingfishers, of course.

Back to the yard, various gorgeous small birds can be found. The Palestine Sunbird, with its mesmerizing colors. It likes to sip the nectar from the flowers.

This time of year, the Great Tits are also flying around happily. They're incredible insect catchers, catching and consuming over a kilo of insects over a years' span. Pretty amazing, considering they're so tiny.
