Avian Retribution

Unhappy Blackbird 006

It’s a tough life for a blackbird in this neighbourhood…

This male blackbird relentlessly heckled this cat for three whole days, virtually non-stop…this is most likely the result of the cat killing a family member, usually a young bird…

In this case I think the unfortunate victim was the spouse as there is only one bird present…

    • Its the way things are Emy, in nature everything eats everything else and the cats can’t help being cats. 😉 I should have also mentioned all the other dangers in the street such as magpies, crows, sparrowhawks, cars and humans in general…blackbirds love living close to us but they just seem to get the hardest time…
