As winter comes, we put up a bird feeder outside of the window for so many years now, and this year is no exception. But in fact, there IS an exception as long as I’ve got mics and a recorder! So the other day I took a feeder that was my New Year gift box long long ago, then filled it with a proper helping of grain, attached a pair of mics with two clips each one to the opposite side of the rack and went to a discreet location (0:00). Within a few seconds (0:07) a tit came, but shortly after she has been driven out (0:23) by a couple of cheeky sparrows. They took her place forcing her to move to a less comfortable side rack (0:34). Sergiyev Posad birds pecked, chirped and fought (1:00) but I have a feeling that the tit was the cool one here anyway.
