In reply to Ester petal:
Ester petal said:Blackbirds come every day for dry porridge oats and wet soggy brown seeded bread they prefer.They put wet soggy piece bread in beak and then dot to dot on porridge so collecting a lot and fly off if other birds around.
What you are describing there is adults bulk collecting bread to then feed young with. Parent blackbirds will have been struggling to gather suitable food to give to their young.
