He had a good bath, dried himself, and flew away.

Excellent, Marty!
I love Blackbirds! They are perfectly shaped and proportioned!
The favourite Birds which inhabit my garden every day:
Blackbirds, Thrushes, Starlings, Magpies, Wood Pigeons, Doves, Sparrows, Robins, Swallows, Blue Tits, Yellow Hammers, etc...etc...!
Always lots of activity going on!
My next-door neighbour attracts them with fresh seeds and water!
(Have to be careful though, 'cos that also attracts vermin; Rats and Mice!)
Where would life be without our feathered friends!
Take care, all!
Paul.... :D ...!

Thanks for the reply Paul, like you I enjoy the company of my feathered friends. I don't have the variety you have, but I love watching them.
Blackbirds are real clowns, Starlings seem to be the "Bovver boys" of the bird world, and the Sparrows...well, they are the ever nervous ones.

Feathered friends... Marty that looks like a juvenile, bit late in the season?
Magpies, Paul?
Over here we shoot them on sight.

The splash of deep black and brilliant white feathers is unmistakable in the garden!
Magpies are masters of squatting in other birds nests, and getting their owners to take over their eggs for them!... :blink: ...!

They are wonderfully proportioned birds, with their fat tummies, and long tail feathers!

My neighbour's pesky Cats are always my biggest worries when the birds are around!.... :angry: ...!

The fat Wood Pidgeons cant get off the ground fast enough!

I love all the excitement all the birds get when it's very windy outside...
...a bit like me on my Motorcycle...two open-air flyers!

Paul.... :D ...!
