Malik has taken a different task to the fall migration predatory drive. Rather than waste energy stalking, chasing and likely not catching birds, Malik lies quietly among the mountain ash trees under the very berries that provide a good food supply to the song birds. As we get a few more frosts, the berries will become a bit fermented, and the birds will be a bit tipsy. This will likely improve Malik’s odds for catching something. Although, it appears he just likes to be in the mix, and a meal is not a requirement.
