For a while there has been at least four male Blackbirds in my garden, maybe five and two or three females.
It's hard to sometimes tell one male from another, but after a while you see different things and sometimes they have little quirks which help to identify them too.
I like to give my birds a name, it helps when keeping notes about them and I swear that over the years some have responded when I call their name.
The Blackbird above is called 'Ruffles' as named by my friend Mary over at Daisytrail. Its a great name considering how ruffled his feathers are from lots of nest activity.
Several weeks ago he had a bad leg but that seems to be OK now.
'Ruffles' has a little mark on his face by his beak on his right side, which I hope stays after he moults.
He is not as confident as two of the other males but like them he will come looking for food and look in the window/door until I go out to feed him.
Made using one of the fabulous kits from Digifiddle Designs called 'Summer Secrets'.
