bird eats compost

Birdie breakfast buffet

A bit hard to see as I had to use my mobile phone to photograph.

the bird knows I am nearby

If we open the compost birds come to eat the fruit peels. Usually one stands guard while the other hops in and eats. And usually if one points any photographic device in their direction they immediately take off.

This bird was alone and kept watch for itself, but stayed even though I took a couple of very quick photos.

Amongst the compost are mango and papaya peels, which seem to be the favourite.
