Artist's Description

Warmer weather and our lounge sliding doors are wide open, this little fledgling blackbird decided to come in for an inspection and then forgot his way out. I heard flapping and realised that a bird had come in, grabbed the camera, just in case there was an opportunity. Having got himself behind the glass doors, he realised that he could not get out. A few photos, and he was gently placed on the tree outside, he posed one last time, then awkwardly took off into the garden to find his mum. Their beaks look too big for their heads at this age…This is my favourite time of year when all the little fledglings are out and about…I love watching the parents teaching them the ropes…

The Common Blackbird, Turdus merula, is a species of true thrush. It is also called Eurasian Blackbird (especially in North America, to distinguish it from the unrelated New World blackbirds), or simply Blackbird (in areas where it is the only blackbird-like species). It breeds in Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to Australia and New Zealand. It has a number of subspecies across its large range; a few of the Asian subspecies are sometimes considered to be full species. Depending on latitude, the Common Blackbird may be resident, partially migratory or fully migratory. The male of the nominate subspecies, which is found throughout most of Europe, is all black except for a yellow eye-ring and bill and has a rich melodious song; the adult female and juvenile have mainly dark brown plumage. This species breeds in woods and gardens, building a neat, mud-lined, cup-shaped nest. It is omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects, earthworms, berries, and fruits. Both sexes are territorial on the breeding grounds, with distinctive threat displays, but are more gregarious during migration and in wintering areas. Pairs will stay in their territory throughout the year where the climate is sufficiently temperate. This common and conspicuous species has given rise to a number of literary and cultural references, frequently related to its song. (Wikipedia)
