So cool! I was tending to some flower beds in town when these bird chicks appeard in the bushes. One of them flew up and sat down on my shoulder! Then it landed on my watering-tool. I was very surprised because it is wild birds but probably used to humans anyway. :-)

Description

Today I discovered blackbird egg shells ~30 metres away from the nest and already feared the worst due to the magpie pair nesting nearby. I then rushed to the nest, which had no adult on it, to find out that 3 out of 5 eggs hatched today!

Cool anti-predator strategy to carry the quite obvious egg shells away from the nest!

The eggs were laid around the 15th May (www.inaturalist.org/observations/3180752), which gives an incubation period of 12 days. Wiki gives an incubation period of 12-14 days, and 3-5 eggs per clutch, so our pair seems to be doing great.

It is also called Eurasian Blackbird (especially in North America, to distinguish it from the unrelated New World blackbirds), or simply Blackbird, where this does not lead to confusion with a similar-looking local species. It breeds in Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to Australia (where it is considered a pest) and New Zealand. It has a number of subspecies across its...
