Jackdaws eat invasive caterpillars, video


This 25 May 2018 video shows jackdaws eating invasive box-tree moth caterpillars in Wijchen town and Tilburg city in the Netherlands. Box tree moths, originally from Asia, harm box trees.

K. Tijsse Klasen in Wijchen and Hans Hermans in Tilburg made this video.

It is warning not to kill the invasive caterpillars with insecticides; as these would kill the birds.
