Usually the first to arrive on up-turned garden soil, and quite prepared to stay a while - they've also taken my crumpled plain digestive.
"Wherefore be a blackbird to, I know where he be"
According to my 1895 'British Birds' by The Rev. F O Morris, the Blackbird makes very good eating.
good photo david
Poet, well there were 24 of them baked in a pie..They say that all the Nursery Rhymes have some modicum of truth in them.
Never tried Blackbird pie but have had Chinese sparrows and they have a lot of bones in them, but there not to bad because once fried the bones are nice and crispy
No wonder they have beady eyes... Bet he spotted that tasty worm from high above.... Looks like he's toying with the worm before he pounces! That's nature ...
The Chinese eat many strange things...isnt that why the world is in the mess that its in ??
I see now they have banned the eating of cats & dogs...bully for them....
Good shot Rev. That really is a black bird.
Ever tried a Chinese bat Mick.? !!
No not bats Pee Bee , but Crickets, Cockroaches, Caterpillar.and Sea Horses
