I think that's enough jungle juice for one day...........! by 


PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGE TO VIEW LARGE.

It looks like the juice from this mandarin must have been pretty potent and the Silver Eye has had too much ! I can’t make up my mind whether the male House Sparrow is patiently waiting his turn or is looking on with disapproval ! Actually, these wonderful little birds will clean out an apple, orange or mandarin and just leave a thin skin still perfectly shaped.

Location – at the back of my house Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

    Aren’t they just so comical Roy… lovely image… I love watching them in the most awkward positions, and you have captured this one so well..

  • Many thanks Andrea – yes we are thoroughly enjoying their antics ! Things have quietened down a bit as the Mynah’s and Tui are getting a bit stroppy.

    Ha ha great capture Roy … he does look a little like he’s had one over the eight ! I sometimes put out melon skins with some seeds and pulp and they peck them clean … then the badger comes along at night and eats the skin so nothing is wasted!

  • Nothing quite like feeding the wildlife Susie ! Thank you for your kind comment. This way, exchange Badger for Possums – but I bring the skins in as I don’t want to encourage the Possums, they are one damn nuisance !

    hahahah,brilliant.

  • Thank you kindly Jamie – both for your kind comments and favourite, I do appreciate it. The Indian Mynah’s, the bandits of NZ birds and our resident Tui are getting a bit stroppy so things have quietened down with the Silver Eyes.
