Blackbird in a Melbourne garden, a couple of springs ago.
Going home is just like crossing the road,
look right again.
Drat that silly woman with
Oh, she wants a profile shot!
OK, now home to my hungry brood -
those worms do wriggle so!
So nice photos, - such a cute blackbird!ReplyDelete
She's a lovely, photogenic bird!ReplyDelete
Liebe Arija, das ist eine wunderbare Fotoserie...ReplyDelete
Liebe Grüsse Dir
What fun, lovely shots, Arija, and a beautiful bird! Have a good evening!ReplyDelete
your blackbirds are so handsome.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Really nice pictures and funny too!ReplyDelete
Also we have the blackbirds here in Sweden. They are so good hunters, hear the worms crawling!
Great close up!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.ReplyDelete
Interesting photos - that's one bird we don't have up this way - yet!ReplyDelete
I love your commentary! such a fun bird to see, the specks in it's feathers are grand.ReplyDelete
Funny captions and great shots. He/she was nice to pose for you!ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Such a cute Blackbird!ReplyDelete
Road safety for all!! I do rather like these birds - introduced or not - but the nest in our garden seems to have been abandoned.ReplyDelete
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne

Poor worm, but wonderful captures, Arija. Just excellent light on your blackbird to bring out all the (gory) detail :)ReplyDelete
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.
Black birds and what a cute little chap this one was for you...I am wondering who got the most joy out of it posing, or you clicking the camera. Love and hugs~ReplyDelete
Very cute! Those babies are starving-aren't they always?ReplyDelete
Terrific closeup shots Arija!ReplyDelete
