I am new to the forum and certainly don't know as much about birds as I would like, but I got a photograph of a female blackbird yesterday who appeared to be disgorging a pellet similar to what a raptor would do - do blackbirds actually produce pellets or is she doing something else?
Thanks in advance for any information!
