With regard to the previous blog entry (Tuesday 2) here is the photo I took this morning of a male blackbird, who is nesting in the vicinity and a young female bird, who is one of his first brood this year, and who is now helping to feed what is the second brood of this year. We are putting out mealworms for their main course, and dried currants for their pudding. Father and daughter are now working very hard scavenging for the present brood. It is, I think, not at all an unusual arrangement for members of the first brood to work hard feeding the second brood. Interesting though!
