I suppose it is the little things in life that put the cherry on the top. There is perhaps nothing special or spectacular about a blackbird in the garden, but this little lady (and it is a lady of the species – I had to correct) visits us daily. Now and again she pulls a worm out of the lawn and flies off with it. She probably has a family of chicks to feed. They are devoted birds and help each other with the housework, just like me and Mr. Swiss.
I had to re-write this as it was definitely a female and not a male. The males are black and the females more brown.
