...can this really be the case? I have observed that in the back garden the last few days there are just girl baby birds being fed by their Mums and the boys appear to congregate out in the front garden. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this behaviour. When they were very young, as in still quite fluffy they all seemed to join in together...now they are still young enough to be fed but have split into groups.
Either way there will be enough food to go around as I bought a 20kg bag today, I am hoping it will last a good way through the summer.
