Loquat Thief

Yumm, I love my loquat fruits, but so do the critters.  And don't get me wrong, I do share with all of them :)

Snapped a picture of this black bird (a Grackle?) enjoying a Loquat fruit for breakfast:

A honking car startled the bird to fly off, but not without taking the fruit along.


  1. I enjoy wildlife as well and provide lots for them to eat, but I don't enjoy when they take my food. Your photo of him with the loquat made me smile...

  2. Haha, little thiefer! I sympthize - I have my share of thieves in my garden as well!

  3. I agree with you, there are certain fruits, like the nectarines and mangoes, I don't like to share, but loquats I do have enough for everyone ;)

  4. I just thought it was so neat that, even though he was startled and wanted to fly off, he took the fruit with him (or her?)
