Blackbird City

The very cold weather is back and with it come most of the local blackbirds who seem to think the Bag End Buffet is the best place to hang out. Have counted at least 12 on many occasions, this morning I could snap 7 under the sunflower feeder and there were more by the shrubs.



Then I realised the brown bird on the edge of the group was our first Redwing, identified by the red on her body and a very distinct eye stripe. No time to change the lens, managed a couple of not very good shots before she went out of range.
