A couple of times the youngster tried to get Starlings which had food in their beaks to feed it. Needless to say they didn't really think that was a good idea. Throughout the day there have been several adult Blackbirds visit the garden but none have made any attempt to feed the youngster but it does appear to be able to feed itself without any problem.
The male Blackbirds have been scooping up seeds from the lawn so they are still feeding young somewhere.
How do they pick up so many seeds without losing the first ones?

Here's hoping that the juvenile finds a suitable roost for the night and we shall see whether it is in the garden again tomorrow.
