They ascended from the trees on to our dull, drought ridden lawn to feed on Black Oiled Sunflower seeds and have their fill of water.
The Blackbirds were travelling with a large flock of American Robin birds ...not in such high numbers but I did count more than 50 on the ground at one time.
They were feasting not on the seed but on the little berries that the now bare Bradford Pear tree produces ..this year they were in larger quantities than other years.
I hope you had a lovely start to 2017.
Happy New Year everyone
