Jay Gets the Berry

The ever resourceful Eurasian Jay (Garrulus glandarius) never misses a trick when food is involved.
I took these distant shots (which I had to crop) across marshland when I observed the bird flying into a tree. He was stretching out and downwards balancing with one wing on branches to get the largest berry, which looks like a Haw berry.

  8. My sister was excited so see her first one in Highgate woods, London. She thought it was a parrot initially! She also said its intelligence was very plain in the way it watched her.
