Songs from the Wood.

I like this time of year.  Its not too hot.

But most of all, I like the way its sounds.

Most mornings and evenings are filled with the sounds of Blackbirds singing.  (I can hear one now).

I know that they are not a native bird, but while many of the birds that pass through my garden are colourful, few of them are songsters.

This picture was taken a little early in the year - its a male in full song in out front garden.






You can find more pictures from around the world here at  Our World Tuesday.  SM

Beautiful photos of the blackbird, Stewart.
Here it is winter now, so dark early, and no birds see singing.
Greetings Irma

What better way to start one's day than with a serenade from one of Nature's vocalists?

We should all be so fortunate.

I have to admit I've never thought of Blackbirds singing!! That's wonderful and I love your captures for the day, to, Stewart! Hope you have a great week!

Blackbirds don't sing in my part of the world. I would like to hear what this one sounds like.

Didn't realize that your beautiful and exotic (to me) birds weren't usually songsters! I love hearing bird song in the morning, my favorite kind of alarm clock.

I love the song of Blackbird. But, the ones I have seen here in California have a red patch on their wings.

One of my favourites. I love their song!
