Ten birds and one bun


This video is about birds near a railway in Dutch Zeeland province in 2015.

This morning, there was a bun on the railway platform.

A feral pigeon was defending the big piece of bread rather effectively against a jackdaw and a black-headed gull in winter plumage, by standing on it.

However, then the number of jackdaws rose to five, meaning they got their shares of bread now as well.

Until a carrion crow arrived. The smaller birds, including now two gulls, shied away from this bigger one. Though, whenever train passengers came close, the pigeon profited from being less afraid of humans than the crow.

Later, the carrion crow flew away. Now, two pigeons around the bun. Then, my train arrived.
