It's easy to carry almonds. They're a healthy quick human snack when out for hours bird watching. Every once in a while I share. Peanuts are cheaper. Almonds are haute cuisine.
The picture I couldn't get was the sparrow snagging an almond in air. Think lateral pass intercepted. I just stood there and laughed. First, I never knew a sparrow would want a whole almond and I never knew they had football capabilities. The second delight was the blue jay who wanted to stuff his mouth with almonds. The biggest surprise was the towhee who came out of the tall grass and took what he wanted.
