Well stone the crows...
 Well stone the crows...   by Ron Dawber  (Canon D60 Sigma 300 mm lens)

This is priceless to me! Thanks,Ron.
Thirty years ago, my now late sister had a Blackbird affectionately named Mrs.B used to visit her at her kitchen door. She,the Blackbird would perch on the door handle and peck at the glass in order to get her treat!

It does look like a blackbird to me as well Ron.

And if I may say so its got a very nice pair of legs.

Comment by aitch on 13th December 2011 at 11:08

Definately a Blackbird We had one in the garden all last summer he would sit at your feet and take the bread...lovely.Noticed this week they are making an appearance again. Roll on summer!


Comment by Ken R on 13th December 2011 at 23:32
Ron, Micks got a point, your Robin was up to its knees in doodoo, so you say. Good shot.


Comment by Ellen on 14th December 2011 at 02:23
'Course it's a blackbird (as opposed to a black bird) Crows don't have yellow beaks, or so I was told as a little'un.


Comment by Harry C. on 14th December 2011 at 15:49
It's a blackbird, I have Mr. and Mrs. every morning, if I'm late they noisely hop up and down on the fence untill I replenish the bird table. H.


Comment by mr twitter. on 15th December 2011 at 19:02
look ive been watching wild birds for some forty years now , blackbirds have yellow legs , its a young crow i tell you ,


Comment by josie on 15th December 2011 at 22:45
its a young crow , its slightly different in shape and its beak is a bit longer and its legs are the wrong colour.


Comment by Paula on 15th December 2011 at 23:47
It's definitely a male blackbird which you should know if you've been watching birds for so long Mr Twitter.....or is it birds of another kind???????????


Comment by mr twitter on 20th December 2011 at 14:50
