Why is it that some species of bird's when seen are just given a cursory glance through binoculars or telescope and passed over. But if they were rarities we would be drooling over them for their colourful plumage and raw beauty. I am mainly talking about, The Mallard, The Shelduck Magpie Jackdaw and Wood Pigeon. This is but a few as there are numerous others that could be named. I admit that in the case of Wildfowl Hybrid and confusion species can be a problem. So next time you see one of these birds ignore their raucous nature, take a good look and try to think of something more beautiful. Top Shelduck and Jackdaw. // Middle Wood Pigeon and Magpie. Bottom last but not least The Humble Mallard.
