Blackbird (fledgling)
07-MAY-2006 Gary Martin

Blackbird (fledgling)

Llanelli, Wales

Turdus merula
AKA: Common blackbird
The males live up to their name but, confusingly, females are brown often with spots and streaks on their breasts. The bright orange-yellow beak and eye-ring make adult male blackbirds one of the most striking garden birds. One of the commonest UK birds, its mellow song is also a favourite.
