Blackbird – Female


The female Blackbird is rather confusingly brown, some even have spots and streaks on their chest!  This one is a fairly dark bird – they do vary greatly in colouration.  The female is responsible for building the nest and will usually do so low down in suitable cover.  It is a substantial piece of engineering and will sometimes be used for more than one brood.  We’ve found nests which are two or three years old and they are still pretty much intact!
