So few birds (other than magpies and seagulls) here this year! It's very sad. And not nearly as many bees. And I haven't seen a single butterfly this summer.  :(

They are all over at mine!   ;) ;D

Honestly, I've noticed such a difference since I started feeding them regularly.

One of my local lesser black-backed gulls was killed (hit by a car) yesterday, and she has 2 big chicks on the ground.  I'm worried about what will happen to them... will the other gulls look after them at all?

Both of my parent gulls feed their babies so hopefully dad will still be around to feed them. I'm so sorry about mama bird.  :\\\'(

They're at that awkward in-between stage between chick and juvenile. They can fly, but spend most of their time on the ground, crying.  Not sure if they can feed themselves yet or not.  Hope the dad, or someone is looking out for them.  I might take some soft dog biccies out with me next time, to toss their way in hopes they'll eat them.

 Their crying really tugs at the heart strings, poor babies.  It's worth trying but sometimes at that age they can't figure out that something is food unless it comes directly out of a parent.

Dad is probably waiting until the coast is clear before he goes down to them, I hope so.

Thanks for posting this.  I'll definitely participate. 

We had ring-necked parakeets in the garden at our prior home.   We don't get anything out of the ordinary in our current home.
