Blackbirds love our house.
It rains a lot, the ground is soft and there are heaps of bugs to eat.
Blackbirds seem to me to be very hard workers, and they are at it all year round.
For a few moments in the middle of the afternoon they sit completely still and then they are back at it again.
This was one of those moments.
Their song is one of the most beautiful sounds the world has to offer. The Beatles wrote a song about it.
