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. What a lovely video and such beautiful, soothing music. A nice peaceful 3 min. 20 sec. video. Thanks you for posting this Pete.

      1. That video was over 3 minutes of stopping to be quiet and relax. You wrote that lovely music – I saw you mention that at the beginning. Really did like that calming music Pete. 🙂

      2. I really appreciate your most kind words, Peggy 🙂 I have been writing and making music on and off since the 1980s.

      4. Thank you, Peggy 🙂 I only do it as a hobby, like my photography. There just isn’t always enough time to do everything, what with full time work, too. But i do enjoy making music, and photography, and I will bring them together on occasion via video.

  2. 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.

  3. Just found this as it was “related” to today’s blackbird post you did and I just loved the film of the blackbird together with the lovely music. A very pleasant interlude that was most unexpected 🙂
