I heard a cuckoo is a long , thin strip wood on saturday. i had a wlak this afternoon with a view to photographing a treecreeper sat on her nest only to find the bark pushed out and the nest pulled right out. i wonder if the cuckoo would have been to blame. i know the treecreeper has small eggs and the cuckoos would be much larger , but its not impossible.....what do others think?

aylsbury, callers, indian runners etc are all decendents of mallards that have been bred by man to produce certain characteristic but are still basically mallards so will readily breed with wild mallards, the young of which will be able to bred, if you want a nice dinner then the hybreds are often a little larger so more meat!

Now the weather is good and the birds can find their own grub, should i stop feeding them or will it help them raise their young? Ive heard it it can interfere with them getting the natural food they should be getting?

I have whole peanuts in a feeder that they have to peck to get small bits out.

I put wild bird seed mixed with the lard pellet things (like the lard balls but the size of minced beef)

Will this be ok?
