Oh the joys of freshly unearthed worms. Anticipated feast ahead. I imagine their beaks are watering! We have so many birds in our backyard trees. When the tiller breaks up the garden its a free for all. I enjoyed your write and the pics :-)

Hope he doesn't accidentally kill one with his tractor, a murder of crows - each has a long memory and are so intelligent and revengeful, they will hound him and his children in the next generation. Lovely write JAN, wonderful pictures. Hugs and blessings, Jennifer.

oh gosh seagulls are such scavengers as are the crows you see them swoop down to peck at road kill and the seagulls will tear food from your hands if they get the chance:-( hugs jan xx

I can see this group of crows on the telephone wires. Rocking to-and-fro to keep balance then up and off for the fresh unearthed worm. Lovely image. Tony
