The Young One.


Juvenile Blackbird
 

All grown up,... the male Blackbird.
 

We still see him in the garden.
 

and...still call him the young one!:)
 

It looks like the same picture, but these last three were taken in succession.
 

Shall I or shan't I!
 

Just make sure there's no one around.
 

Yippee!
 

This feels good!
 


 
We used to see this juvenile Blackbird (first shot) every so often at the bird table. We started to call him (The Young One.) He was incredibly shy, and I only ever managed to get one shot that was half decent. He had little white and grey patches, so was easily recognizable when he appeared. Look at him now! He’s rather special with his white markings, due to a shortage of melanin no doubt, but we still think he's a fine looking bird. WILD BIRD WEDNESDAYS
