Juvenile Blackbirds......................................................... feeding in my garden

I have quite a few juvenile birds feeding in the garden.

The young Blackbirds are always scratching around looking for something to eat.

...and drink.

Making a bit of a mess of the flower beds in the process.

They are fending for themselves really well...

...but Dad always has an eye on them.... and has a loud alarm call when required.

Linking to Our World Tuesday and Wild Bird Wednesday

If you haven't already seen it please scroll down to see the baby Robin in my garden in my last post.

I too love watching the little birds in my garden...the loud noises they make and the parents who are constantly on the look out!

Amazing how brown the babies are before they mature to black.
