Visiting tourist
Testing the facilities
Pool acceptable

This young blackbird is a regular visitor to my son’s garden. Ignoring the vast expanse of pond, stream and waterfall, he dives daily into an unused cat-litter tray that the rain fills with water….or, since his visits became a regular feature… I fill instead. He seems completely unconcerned by the camera…but I think he needs a hairdresser.

    He’s such an odd looking little guy. Super cute though. 🙂


  8. What a lovely picture! 🙂 Maybe he is a young and revolutionary blackbird fashion designer. 😉
