  • Day Score: 7.65715650001/10


We get lots ov Blackbirds in our garden. They ar eezy to spot coz they ar blak an berds. Sept for the laydy wuns, wich ar brown.

Heer's a Blackbird. As yu can see, he is a blak blackbird, so he is a boy.

-We took that foto on a cold mornin an yu can see the grarss is frosty. Frosty grarss is fun cos it crunches wen yu walk on it, like wen Daddy eets seerial for brekfust. Yu can also see ice in this pikcher, wich Mummy took off the dish befor puttin new warter in. Sum ov the ice she took off jus befor we took the pikcher, but sum ov it iz from the day befor, an it haddent been warm enuff to melt.

WELL! The other day we sor a laydy Blackbird (that's a brown Blackbird, rite?) pikkin up moss an stiks an stuff an flew into a tree neer our howse. "HULLO!" I thort, "I wonder if she is maykin a nest?" an Mummy had a look but dident find enything. But today, wen she waz bizzy I got up in the tree to hav a look myself!

Heer's me an the tree. Look how close to the bak ov the howse it is! The laydy Blackbird mus reelly like us!

This is me poyntin to the bit ov the tree whare the nest is. That issent red string, it's red pen. I drew it on the pikcher arfterwerds:It's well hiddon an yu carnt tell from the owtside that thare is a nest inside. I climed in the tree an this is how I fownd it! Good job I'm a spy or I never wud hav spottid it thare! (That's how Mummy mist it!) Heer is the nest inside the tree-

The laydy Blackbird hasent got eny eggs yet. I shall keep an eye on things for her. Me an Dilly ar goin to gard the tree in cayse eny big bully berds, like jackdaws or magpies com an try to eet the eggs or the babys. I shall go "Hu-phwarr!" in a kararty chop an pertekt them.

It is very Easterry to find a nest.

Do yu hav eny sines ov spring or Eeaster whare yu liv?

Bye fer now!

Chalkhills Collective said...

Splendid find Bob. Are you going to set up a 24hr watch?

You could take over from Sir David A when he retires.


B.T.Bear (esq.) said...


Thanks for poppin by! I enjoyd the fotoes ov yu as a pup on your blog!

I like wrens but I havent seen eny rownd heer for a very long time. I like the way they hold their tailes up!


B.T.Bear (esq.) said...


sheez not on the nest yet. Will she defnitly yews it, or do yu think it's a spare? I kno the littol old laydy 2 doors down haz blackerds nestin in her garden. I wonder if our nest is just a spare.....


No Cool Story said...

I love♥ this post.
Not only now I know more about blackbirds (they are black and birds and the boys are black) and lady blackbirds (which are actually brown) but those pictures are super adorable.


No Cool Story said...

The sign that spring has arrived over here (the US Pacific NW) is:
There's no rain for more that one day.

YAY! Maybe this year Spring will land on a weekend!

BumbleVee said...

Hey Bob!! I saw my first robin today! They come back here every March on the 15th like clockwork...just hadn't spotted one yet. But..today...there he was hopping quietly along under the spruce tree..... they play at being sparrows and chickadees for several weeks when they first get back cuz no self respecting worm would bother to stick out their heads yet...too cold...ground too darn hard... etc. So... the robins follow the littel birds around pecking at old dead bugs and bits... bet they are glad when a nice fat juicy worm finally shows its silly head .....

Animals with Opinions said...

opur signs of spring are the baby cows running all over the field next door. also the pastures are starting to change from brown to green. i like to sun myself on the porch. i think you'll do a fine job protecting the nest!


Harry said...

How eggciting! I look forward to hearing some cracking reports of the baby birds.

huskerbeck said...

Hi Bob -
Spring has sprung (finally) in Idaho, but I'm sad to say that my Yorkshire Terrorist, Scooter, has dug up all of my crocus bulbs as soon as they showed a sprout. I'm guarding the daffodils and I think they will be safe because they are in the front yard where Scooter can't get at them. Love the pictures of your backyard and I hope the nest fills up soon!

A.Bananna said...

My children loved looking at your pictures! they even said hi to you! :) I think they like you a lot! who wouldn't like you?

It is warm here. The weather is so nice now! this is the time of year that I LOVE! anyways...have a wonderful day!!

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...



Granny's cat, Mr Scooter, wud find it very funny that yu hav a Yorky wiv his nayme!!! But eevn tho he is hewge he wud probly still hide behind the sofa from him cos he duzzent do brayve.

Our berds hav been nibblin the bulbs heer- they've nibbold all the bloobells' heds off. WIch I dident like, coz I like bloo things.


By the way, Mummy red that daffodils ar bad for cats' tummys an mayke them sik- I wonder if it is the sayme for dogs-? Better gard them well from that wee Terrierist!!


B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

Hi Bob,
