I have a new blackbird in my garden, that I’m guessing is a juvenile male. However, has a very distinctive difference between his body, which is black, and his head, which is brown. Any ideas?
In reply to PimperneBloke:
Definitely a juvenile male blackbird. Ours here also have the heads last to turn black, and the beak takes a little longer before turning yeoolw.
