I’ve been watching the male blackbird run around feeding two juveniles that almost look bigger than he does. It’s left to the male to feed the young while the female sees to the preparation for the next possible brood.
I’ve only seen two together so I’m not sure how many young there are. They keep venturing out of the bushes then dashing back under cover.
Although they are able to feed themselves, they’re always ready with beaks open
Does this seem like a ‘give me a break, kids’ kind of look
