Common Emerald Dove.
Green feathered birds are a bit difficult to be recognized since they look similar to their surroundings. I was blessed to found them this morning.
The film quality isn't very good, sorry, but it's about what our favourite Magpie DOES. He was watching to make sure no other birds were observing what he did. They say that thinking of the future is a sign of intelligence. Well, he had just hidden one ball of mince in the grass under the Grevillea. I'd never filmed him doing this, so I gave him a bit more, hoping for an encore. And he gave me one. Hid the next ball of mince over the septic tank. Ate a bit of it too, but definitely hid some. As smart as any crow or raven, even smarter, I'd guess. You won't believe the things he warns us about... #australianbirds#birds#bird#birdsofinstagram#magpie#intelligence#clever#cleverboy#smart
