In the trees near me there are at least 50 birds of the same species,which from the photo i can identify as jackdaws.They are quite brave and do not scatter easily when disturbed.

Wondered what this handsome bird was in our garden, I feed the birds with seed, bread/fat and biscuits - he is very sociable and I hope to encourage him/her much more! Thankyou for the wonderful photo, the description was so easy to recognise our visitor
