Black bird holding berry
Winter male black bird eating berries.
The male black birds live up to their name but , confusingly, females are brown often with spots and streaks on their breasts. The bright orange-yellow beak and eye-ring make adult male blackbirds one of the most striking garden birds.
One of the most common UK birds, its mellow song is also a favourite. Blackbirds are found everywhere in gardens and countryside and from coasts to hills, although not on the highest peaks.
What they eat
Insects, worms and as you can see in the photo berries.
