Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes - Blackbird and Worms


Blackbird in a Melbourne garden, a couple of springs ago.

Going home is just like crossing the road,
look right


look left,


look right again.


Drat that silly woman with 
the camera


Oh, she wants a profile shot!
OK, now home to my hungry brood -
those worms do wriggle so!

  6. Nice shots Arija. I always think that the whole of a bird's life is lived on a knife edge watching out for would-be predators.

  7. Fun captions for each of these shots! The blackbird is so flighty - rapid bursts of movement! I am amazed that you managed to get so many shots in one place!

    Also we have the blackbirds here in Sweden. They are so good hunters, hear the worms crawling!

  13. Happy New Year dearest Arija. I enjoyed this post. I giggled at your captions. Hahaha! You know, I have started following India and reading her beautiful poems. Somehow I read a lot of you in her. :) May the new year bring comfort and joy. Blessings to you my dearest friend. Tsup!

  14. We have blackbirds here, digging holes in the garden and busily turning the leaf-litter over. They always make me smile, and your captions today made the smile grow. Thank you so much.

  15. Road safety for all!! I do rather like these birds - introduced or not - but the nest in our garden seems to have been abandoned.

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne

  18. Poor worm, but wonderful captures, Arija. Just excellent light on your blackbird to bring out all the (gory) detail :)

    On another note, I'm wondering if you could give me a little help in figuring out how to put the "Our World Tuesday" photo-link on my blog page. I tried several times by copying and pasting the url but no luck.
