This sweet blackbird has a nest in my garden hedge and spends most of the day finding food for the hatchlings in the grass. Later in the day I get a tap on the window asking for food. Not the most picturesque background, but I was lucky to get this shot!

A lovely capture, Rosa it must feel very safe and comfortable with you.
Birds are all so busy at the moment, so are darned cats.

Thank you Roger. Thankfully I haven't seen a cat in the garden for a long time. We do get the occasional bird of prey hanging around though.

Thank you Edna. Thanks also for the music link. I was lucky enough to see him in a show with The Walker Brothers, Jimi Hendrix and The Troggs in 1967!

Awww..............look at the expression on it's face!

A gorgeous blackbird and a superb photo Rosa - so sharp and detailed.

You are so lucky to have it visiting and coming so close to the house. I hope you rewarded it's efforts at begging and for posing so nicely for you.
