There’s Blackbird activity in the town centre. This female has a beak full of worms. It’s suggested to me that they might like onion gravy with that. Surely we ought to be asking whether they want red sauce, brown sauce or no sauce at all?
The male’s been busy too, with a beak full of invertebrates. He appears to have caught a Mayfly as part of his hunting. Both male and female appear to be going a little grey. It’s a common feature of city birds and older birds.
Personally I think it’s through having children.
