I haven’t seen a white tailed blackbird in our garden for ages.
Fleetingly, a while ago I saw two white tailed blackbirds in our garden at the same time.
Every other time there has only been one.
They stood out from the rest and were instantly noticeable. I miss seeing them among the other blackbirds.
Don’t know what has happened to them. I suppose I never will know. Perhaps tomorrow because I have written this they will appear in the garden.
Or maybe the sparrowhawk has got them.
Funnily enough I saw a blackbird with white feathers on its wing a few days ago. It was hopping about on the grass verge and I could clearly see it was a blackbird. It had about three really white feathers showing on it’s back.
I was the passenger in a car and we were travelling very slowly so I got a clear view of it as birds ignore cars. Sadly, I did not have my camera with me.
So it seems white feathered blackbirds are around to stay.
