This is priceless to me! Thanks,Ron.
Thirty years ago, my now late sister had a Blackbird affectionately named Mrs.B used to visit her at her kitchen door. She,the Blackbird would perch on the door handle and peck at the glass in order to get her treat!
It does look like a blackbird to me as well Ron.
And if I may say so its got a very nice pair of legs.
Another very good photograph Ron Haigh Hall certanly as its share of wild life
Mick .I worry about you.
certainly a blackbird, I have had 2 squabbling in my back garden for the last week, no songs yet though,
thats not a blackbird , its a young crow
Sorry Mr Twitter but thats a Blackbird!
Definately a Blackbird We had one in the garden all last summer he would sit at your feet and take the bread...lovely.Noticed this week they are making an appearance again. Roll on summer!
Ron, Micks got a point, your Robin was up to its knees in doodoo, so you say. Good shot.
'Course it's a blackbird (as opposed to a black bird) Crows don't have yellow beaks, or so I was told as a little'un.
It's a blackbird, I have Mr. and Mrs. every morning, if I'm late they noisely hop up and down on the fence untill I replenish the bird table. H.
look ive been watching wild birds for some forty years now , blackbirds have yellow legs , its a young crow i tell you ,
its a young crow , its slightly different in shape and its beak is a bit longer and its legs are the wrong colour.
It's definitely a male blackbird which you should know if you've been watching birds for so long Mr Twitter.....or is it birds of another kind???????????
of course its a male blackbird , i was just winding you up.crows are much bigger with an orange beak.
Twitter is a twit.
