I love the blackbirds in my garden. Not flashy or flamboyant but beautiful none the less in their simplicity. They are ground feeders so are particularly attracted by the bugs and worms that they find in my rather overgrown garden. At the moment there are a couple of young ones on the scene who are eagerly taking in the world around them and learning to fend for themselves before they have to head out and establish their own territory in somebody else's garden. What luck for the owner of the plot where they decide to take residence.
