In reply to Shirley Drabble:
Great list of facts about the Blackbird, Blackbird!
Maybe we could start a thread of 'Bird Facts' with different birds?
Shirley: Last summer I had both a male and female Blackbird chomping away at my window feeder regularly. I haven't seen them over the winter and, so far, nothing since Spring sprung.
In reply to GrahamC:
Well, I had to say it!
This morning, lo and behold, saw the return of one Blackbird happily feeding outside my window. He seemed to be sorting through the seeds looking for his favourite. I couldn't see which......
When not eating tadpoles and other wriggly things, our blackbirds feed under the feeders, picking up what the other birds drop. We seem to have two pairs using the garden, but tempers do flare!
GrahamC, you will find that Blackbird has produced many lists on various birds under 'All Creatures' on pages 2 and 3
Also Buzzard has provided a more in depth detail on http://www.rspb.org.uk/community/forums/p/9736/69374.aspx#69374
Which you need to keep scrolling down for all the information.
In reply to Brenda H:

Buzzard: Wow - fantastic! I'm downloading now......really useful, thanks very much!
