The time has come again for us to feed the birds.
"our" robin has returned again and the pair of blackbirds and to our surprise we saw that they remembered where the food was left for them.
Yesterday I left out an extra treat of some pear pieces and the female blackbird immediately flew down and gobbled it up and then suddenly our robin swooped down all puffed up and chased the blackbird away. It is amazing to watch such a little bird bully a much bigger bird - and succeed - maybe there is a moral there somewhere?!
