Hello Blackbird

This little fellow is lucky I was around to protect it from the attentions of two cats and a dog. Two parents were chirping anxiously to very little purpose. I released it into the rose on the shed roof and it scampered to safety.

Hi Andrew - it's one of the baby blackbirds from the nest under the rose & clematis. The blackbirds and the sparrows decided that yesterday was the day to fledge - it was very noisy in the back garden, all day...Cora thinks it's great.

Another cracking photo Mike :)

He/She doesn't half look grumpy, but then Blackbirds always look highly annoyed. It's the curve of the beak and the set of the eye.

When you see them at it you sometimes wonder how any survive at all!

HB Have you read 'Crow' by Ted Hughes? Not Blackbird but in tune with your general point:)
