Photo-a-Day (Sunday, 6th July, 2014)
The early bird gets the worm
Photo: Harry Cunliffe (Panasonic DMC- FZ38)
Great pic. Harry. I'm no ornithologist, but is this really a Blackbird?
He looks to have the speckled belly of a thrush.
It's the female Blackbird.
Smashing picture harry,as usual
Its a thrush.
Lovely shot Harry :)
Nice one Harry.
Lovely,she'll be feeding her little
'uns..very nice shot Harry.
Chest too dark for a thrush, a thrush chest is white with dark spots
It's a female Blackbird, brown with blurred spots on underparts.
Well done Harry.
Oh. Look, Garry's wrong again!
Nice shot, Harry!
It would be better when taking photos of birds or animals where the male is a nicer colour and better looking, just to take the males.
Pheasant, Peacocks,Mandarin Ducks and Mallards are good examples.
Thanks all. definitely female Blackbird she and the male are feeding the chicks non stop in turns male is black with yellow beak.
Why should Geographer make a silly comment. Some people have no brains and he's one of them. He can't even comment about this bird.
Garry, 6 of the posters congratulated Harry on his photo, as did I. It is 'photo-a-day', not 'comment-on-a-bird-day'.
You and Mick are the ones who incorrectly identified the female Blackbird as a Thrush.
What's silly about me praising Harry, and the person who gets it wrong is the one without brains.
No comment about the quality?
Geographer I said He looks to have the speckled belly of a thrush, I didnt say it was one.
And theres no need to make comments about the quality because its not a photo contest and who can touch up a photo the best.
Geographer, where do you get the 6 from..now you can't count. I still think/know it's a Mistle Thrush. I'm with Mick on this one.
So take them out, tie them both to the railings and give them both 50 lashes!
No need to be so rude and insulting to get your point over.
Thank you Tricia!
Well said Tricia, that's what this sites all about. Nowt wrong with Mick's and Garry's points. It looks like Geographer whats to have a dig at garry at 17:11.
Lovely shot of this hen Blackbird Harry.....nice and sharp with a lovely background....well done....cheers!!!.... :-)
Correct Garry, it was 7 people who congratulated Harry. I notice you didn't. All you did was get it wrong, and you're still wrong!
Tricia, I said he was wrong, that's not an insult, it's a fact.
It was Garry saying I've no brains that's the insult!
Mick, I didn't say it was a contest, comments on the quality as well as the subject are all fine by me!
Alan, Garry's first post was completely wrong, look back and see how many other times he insults people who don't share his (very often) incorrect posts!
Harry, I apologise for the trouble that your excellent photo has caused!!
Definitely a female black bird,nice shot Harry.
Love these birds.They follow me up and down the path until I have to go in and get them some bread or whatever !
A little PS to my previous message.
The blackbirds love FRUIT.We sat in the garden today watching mr+mrs eating some small black grapes and small pieces of apple..... lovely birds
look at the young blackbird on 21 june it will tell you its a blackbird
Well!! I'm glad I only asked!!
