Juvenile Blackbird

After tea we spent an hour or so in the back garden enjoying the return of dry weather after days of heavy showers - about 1.5 inches of rain recently. I was trying to video some of the singing birds while Penny sprawled on the grass out and supervised.

During this a juvenile Blackbird arrived, had a drink from one of the pools of rain water and then slowly wandered over the lawn to the Birdy Bistro, passing less than  a couple of metres from me and giving time for some close shots:




On the whole the local Blackbirds are very trusting and one will often come down while I am topping up the feeders.

    1. Thanks Adrian. Not shooting through two layers of glass makes for sharper photos.

  3. What a beauty John! Quite unlike the adult, isn't it?


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
