He has clearly found a way to eat. Maybe it scoops up seed with the lower mandible? Preening must be a challenge though.
Popped a video of him feeding on youtube you can view it here www.youtube.com/watch
Sorry about the camera shake, trying to lean over the kitchen sink, without scaring him off....
Interesting. Why not post it on one of the forums? More folks are likely to watch it there. I think it will cause a lot of interest.
Can't find where to put video on here. Only joined today after seeing this bird
Would you like me to do the posting on your behalf?
Thank you, if you know of the appropriate forum to post it on go for it, many thanks.....
I've posted in on The Tea Rooms. If you go to the 'Hello' forum, you can introduce yourself to the 'gang'. Everyone is really helpful, so ask as many questions as you like. We have all asked them at some point so don't feel daft!
