Feasting and Resting

The prelude to Spring stirs Penny into a new mode of feasting and resting, prior to the nesting season. She stocks up on a variety of mixed wild bird seeds, Porridge oats, and wholemeal.

Meanwhile she is building up her reserves and sookin up the seeds in the short clip below.

Great description. I've often wondered, watching our local pair whether vacuuming or vaporizing best describes them tucking in to their food.
