#214 baby blackbird

214/365 baby blackbird, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

We’ve had a ‘pet’ bird hopping around the house for a few days. We guess it’s a young female blackbird. It keeps coming back, looking for worms and insects, probably building up strength for the long migration south for the winter.

Today I finally managed to get a picture of it on the wooden garden fence. What a fluffy beauty!

    Thank you Kristy! It’s those feathers that make the bird look still a bit baby-like.

    Hope it builds itself up for the long flight. Nice to see this.
