Pheasant and female blackbird

Saw this female blackbird whilst doing my big garden bird watch, after thinking the male who visits the garden was a bachelor his misses goes and shows up.

Looked out the window to the feeders and saw this guy having a scratch around. Ive heard him in the summer and think he nests in the field just down the road. Ive only seen him once before as he flew over my head into the field so was quite chuffed when he was in my garden.
Photos taken through upstairs window and realised the ISO was too low as it was quite dark so alot of pics didn't come out too well, got 2 good ones but accidently deleted the other lol

  1. Nice photos - we used to get a pheasant when we lived next to a farm back in the UK - didn't realise we had one until it did the whole "look at me" squawk!
