over the last 2weeks a friend of mine has been saying im sure theres a fledging black bird in the garden, every time ive looked not there, so time for a stake out i though so this weekend just gone had camera ready, see what you think guys.
Black Bird Fledgling
Hiya Moorey i'll say yep to all, except i think Robin is a Dunnock but i'm usually wrong.
not seen any young yet.
My photos are on Flickr and Website
Hi alan do dunnock's have long legs like robins? thats what made me think it was a robin
Don't know pal you have a good point..i was going on the colour of its back and the look of the face..you are probably correct
well the robin/dunnock is very bandy in the leg department
The young Robins i had last year look grumpy little things from the front, it will be interesting to see what the others say..i've got a Robin collecting food at the minute.
just been looking at some other pix of the donnock i belive your right Alan
if you don't get a response in here put the photo in the identify this forum
will do mate cheers
Dunnocks have pink/red legs (unlike Robins).
Every day a little more irate about bird of prey persecution, and I have a cat - Got a problem with that?
Cheers john so a dunnock it is then a 1st for me even though i do have adults in the garden all the time
yep its came back its a donnock fledgling
The birds down here in Southampton must be slow, the adults are still filling their beaks with my soaked mealworms and flying off. I have seen no fledgings here. They must be reluctant to leave the nest with all that good food coming in.
im in north notts/south yorks boarder thats worksop while eatting my dinner im sure i saw 3 siskins fleadglings seen 1 male and 2 female adults today so there might be more. also ive seen lots of birds today eatting the dasiy off the lawn pulling the flowers and munching on whats below.
