Male and female; Turdus merula
In the winter it is estimated that there are about 10-15 million Blackbirds in the UK! It is so successful due to its adaptability, for it is equally at home in a park or suburban garden as it is in woodland. It has a beautiful song and they typically like to sing after rain!
Blackbirds can be confused sometimes with Starlings. Young blackbirds (sometimes called juveniles) can be confused with thrushes or even robins, due to their speckled brown feathers.Record a sighting
