In the Sycamore – three Redwing and a male Blackbird. The Blackbird was not pleased – they were a bit too close to home – his territory is in the ‘jungle’, just up from the sycamore. We’ve seen Mrs Blackbird collecting nesting material and going in there with it.
Blackbirds have very expressive body language – there was a lot of tail flicking and head cocking, when he was perched along from the Sycamore. Then, he flew right in among the Redwings as if to say “Oy – clear off!!!”
Redwings are such smart birds – as can be seen in this pic – and, how they come to be called Redwing!
Who needs to roam from home? It’s all there – outside your house. And, if you don’t live in the countryside, there are the sparrers, starlings, pigeons. If you’re very lucky, you could see a bird of prey – https://www.nhm.ac.uk/discover/city-birds-and-how-to-watch-them.html
Life – lives!
Ed’s comment: we humans had become so noisy we were unable to hear what was all around us.
