deer eating a bird
Published on May 16, 2010
Birds were flying in and running into the head of this young buck in our front yard. I was watching through the window, and I didn’t know why the birds were attacking him. Then, I saw the little bird on the ground. The other birds had only been trying to distract the deer. I decided not to exchange the audio with music because when I played the video back, I realized my overly dramatic reaction was funny. Yes, I know I have a country accent. Please be kind in your comments! I own the rights to this video. RIP Michael, my amazing husband. I miss your laugh! 12/06/60 – 08/10/18
Got the link to this from Dr. Karl Shuker’s blog… I mean, how could I have resisted clicking on ‘Bird-eating Deer’? Seriously.
And there it was! I’ve never heard of this behavior before, but obviously if this one did it, then I’m sure millions of others have, too. Gosh, do adult deer also eat birds? Or, omg, babies?!
