Re: BLACKBIRDS

I know what you mean about being a female maybe. Just looked a bit more of a novice at flying in the way it clattered on to the window sill and then looked mightily relieved to have made it. I very very rarely get the blackbirds up here and then it's nearly always the male. They tend to stick to the...

Re: BLACKBIRDS

Hope so. I'll keep an eye out over the next few days I don't normally get the blackbirds up here. I guess I don't really have the sort of food they're after and they're not quite as nimble as the blueies.

Re: BLACKBIRDS

I just heard a clatter at the window (I know they're dirty Placi - I'm decorating :D ) Managed to slowly grab my phone and get a picture of this chunky chappy. Fledgeling blackbird? There's a pair that I'm pretty sure live in the large hedge at the front of the apartment block. I hope it hasn't chos...

Re: ROBINS

I think you need to sit out in the garden for a reasonable time so they get used to you being there and throw food at ever shortening distances and eventually they'll gain the trust. Robin's are especially brave. I have a friend who gardens a lot and the robin will come down and pretty much sit and ...

Re: ROBINS

I have a friend who trains a Robin every year to be hand fed.

Re: BIRD FEEDING

I filled my feeder with nuts, suet and sunflower seeds 2 weeks ago and they've hardly touched it. I think they go through phases of eating certain things at certain times depending on the weather. On another day they'd be here every 10 minutes. Curious. I'd love to know what they're eating now inste...
