The Blackbird And The Cotoneaster

I filmed this delightful Blackbird feeding on berries in my front garden through my study window a few years back now. He was so engrossed in his feeding that he paid no attention to the folk passing nearby on the pavement.

  1. A lovely meditative moment spent watching this fellow. I was struck with how much he looks like our American robin in build (not in color, obviously) and that both like fruit. When I looked them up, lo and behold, they share the same genus Turdus. Continents apart, yet cousins.
