Weekend flights

I am doing a little bit of detective work at the moment … not the usual kind that you see glorified at the cinema or on the television. I am simply trying to establish where my bird containers are going to. This mystery began a few short weeks ago and I am determined to crack the case! So with a bit of help and a motion sensor I am hoping to find which little rascal is carrying off bird containers full of food. Apparently, so strong that not one so far has either been dropped or discarded. I have not yet discovered either which animal or bird is the culprit but I have obtained some rather nice pictures whilst waiting …

So far these are the contenders of the bird container thief …… I think I can at least rule out the sparrow!

Dang....you do have a mystery. If the thief is a bird than my guess would be a Crow. They are smart enough to pull this off. But if it is happening at night it must be another critter.
Cool action photos and I love the rustic feeder!

Well I certainly love a good mystery but I think I would be a little annoyed by someone taking off with my feeders. I hope you solve the case soon

I haven't seen a Magpie in a long time. They can be pretty tricky, right?

If I was to guess a bird it would have to be the crow. But I think it is probably some other animal sneaking in during the night. What ever it is a great mystery. Hope you get the culprit.


I love these pics!! Cannot wait to see who the culprit is. Animals are just so funny!!!
