I have a blackbird that comes in my garden, she has scruffy feathers and a little bald patch on her side at bottom of her body. She eats fine from the bird feeder and has a baby too as seen her feeding it. Can anyone suggest what this could be please? I’m worried she may need help.
Hi Janey, this is a common sight at this time and this question pops up at least once a week. Here is a couple of links to previously answered questions community.rspb.org.uk/.../1306163
Hope this helps
