My Blackbirds (approx. 3 at present) are continuing to eat the Rowan berries that haven't fallen off the tree. I think another three weeks will see the job complete. :nod:

Male blackbird was in my hawthorn this morning, so thought I would watch with my bins. It was looking at the dish of mealworms put out for the smaller birds. But it decided instead to fly down on the berberis. Has nice purple berries, and in flower. As I watched it scoffed down ten berries one after another, and it only flew off because a car as coming along the road. That's a lot of berries for one sitting. Came back again or another male, no yellow beak, but got disturbed.

Same here, Willpar. The blackies (and the wood pigeons :rolleyes:) are attacking the pyracantha berries. They must know when a particular type of berry is j-u-s-t right :).

The only berries remaining in the chateau garden ore the Cotoneastar. The Blackbirds are making inroads so they won't last long. :blackbird: :nod:
