Mr Blackbird

Just watching a blackbird take a drink and a bath in our garden pond. Judging from the colouration of his feathers and beak, he’s probably one of last years young, so not quite fully adult.

His bathing ritual is very precise. First one wing splashes water across his back one way, then the other wing flicks the water in the opposite direction. A quick head bob under, then rinse and repeat.

Photo was the best I could get with the crappy camera on my iPad.
