To be fair to Blackbirds in general that's the way they operate. They just don't like other birds in what they regard as their territory. He's not seeing a baby he's just seeing another bird invading his space. :nod:

You are right Jack, he is probably just making sure that the young one knows who's the boss :nod: , plus, I think that fledgling belongs to the male that he had few fights with which doesn't improve his mood I guess :rolleyes:

Finally getting Blackbird chicks. This one came but no parent. Must be fully fledged and on its own.

I only have one Blackbird still in the garden. The remainder have departed to get rid of the old feathers and grow the new.
