Feeding the birds is relaxing. At least for us. For the birds it can get stressful.
There was plenty of seed around but the little birds got territorial. For the first minute or so all you think you see are a couple of Quail being generally oblivious in the Quail way. On second watching you notice the little birds aren’t eating. They are positioning themselves. Until they just can’t take it any longer.
It is a fine example of SlowTV. A picture that evolves. At under two minutes it is the shortest clip posted to this sight. But it has an explosive finish. Please enjoy.
