Cheeky boy


I feed the birds throughout the year but have forged a special relationship with one blackbird I named Bobby. He has successfully raised chicks and has a regular lady at his side. He demands I feed him at least 2 times a day and always swoops down at my feet in anticipation. Today, to my amazement, he ventured into my lounge as bold as brass, careful not to scare him I let him have a look around and he flew out on his own accord. I will not encourage this behaviour but I think it is fantastic he trusts me to a degree.

Hi Ams long time no see lovely to have a bird spot isnt it ?
We too have a bold blackbird that comes into the kichen looking for mealworms ..he even helps himself direct from the pot if considers us to be too slow !

We have 3 cats so better not encourage any further lol
