Jackdaws Enigma.

This is an enigma to me, has any visitor to this site experienced this behavior? the recipe that kicks off this behavior is a scorchingly hot day and the roof is south facing and the time about midday, and they spend about five to ten miutes in the above position, I have pondered this for some time but cannot find a feasible answer, so going public may shed light on this poser.


  1. Ive seen Blackbirds do this Dave. The opinion is that the strong sunlight helps rid the birds of Parasites.

  2. Thanks Warren,Come to think of it after they had finished sunbathing they then proceeded tp preen very vigorously, supporting your explanation well done.
