Avian congress

I feed birds in my backyard.  Magpies will eat from my hand, but Crows (Ravens) are very suspicious and won’t come too close.  Doves are very wary and do not stick around if I appear outside.  

A short distance from my house there is a daily congress of avians which includes seagulls, crows and Corella white cockatoos probably numbering a hundred birds.  They mass on a mowed roadside and the Corellas eat grass roots.  I don’t know what the crows and seagulls get there.  Maybe the Corellas stir up some bugs as they pull up grass roots?

Crows in my backyard visit every day for food scraps I leave on the lawn.

This one is thinking that somehow this is a trap.
