Hi Trisha,

I posted a comment in May about a blackbird friend.

Well, I didn’t see him for a while,as I was poorly for a long period,but carried on leaving diced apple.

So last month, I got back in the garden and he showed up after a week or so,but acting strange,like he was in a huff with me.

Since I’ve been talking and whistleling to him again,he’s back chirpy as ever.
Don’t blackbirds seem very intelligent creatures!

    Hi Beverley,
  • Indeed they do!

  •  It shows your black bird friend missed you. So that shows blackbirds have feelings and can remember people – and so that means they can remember who has been feeding them.It was very kind of you to think of your blackbird friend when you were ill. That again shows the connection we have with wild birdsI hope you are better now. It’s a pity we can’t communicate in a way that would let your blackbird friend know you’d been ill!!!!

    What a lovely happening. thank you for telling us about it.

    Keep in touch and I hope you enjoy Bird Table News.

    I haven’t been doing as  much with Bird Table News as I usually do – but this is because of house problems, but I think I’ve got them sorted.
