Bawbags with beaks

Bodies resembling scrotums and faces only a mother could love.

It can only mean one thing.

No, not an Outdoors Magic meet.

Blackbird chicks!

The nest is up in the roof space of the barn and they hatched a couple of days ago. I’m going to attempt to rig my camera up to a beam and leave it videoing to try and catch the adults feeding them.

UPDATE

Well so much for getting photies of their development. I think the worms around here must be particularly nutritious, as just 7 days after the first photie was taken I found this grumpy wee man sitting on the cat carrier in the barn.

Picked him up and put him back in the nest with his siblings and 2 minutes later they were all out and perched in various bits of the roof space.
