Blackbird

Bird trail blackbird

The males live up to their name but, confusingly, females are brown often with spots and streaks on their breasts.

The bright orange-yellow beak and eye-ring make adult male blackbirds one of the most striking garden birds. One of the most common UK birds, its mellow song is also a favourite.
