Today I spotted the blackbird with white tail feathers.
I haven’t seen it for ages and thought it had died.
It was on its own at a birdtable in the back garden. Another blackbird came and sent it packing.
Now I think of if, whenever I see this white tailed blackbird it is on its own.
Is the fact that it is ‘different’ to all the other blackbirds making it separate from the other blackbirds.
I only saw it for less than a minute as it was eating from the birdtable, then as I say it was frightened away.
At least I know it is about. It’s interesting being able to keep track of one bird.
At one point a month or two ago I saw two blackbirds with white tail feathers. One of the birds was thin, bedraggled and the tail feathers were faint. I have not seen that one for a while.
