.. * We have a family of blackbirds who have their 'home' in our garden , nesting each year , mostly 2 times sometimes 3.

to help them through winter we always provide them with food: bread, apples and fresh water. The table is set close to the window, so I took this photo through the window. Always lovely to watch it from inside and get this 'close'.

Ho sempre osservato i merli vagare in giardino. Una ciotola d'acqua e un pezzo di pane non sono mai mancati per loro in Inverno. Uno scatto bellissimo Karin. Complimenti. Ciao, Patrizio

Nice bird Karin! :-)

But what I don't like about them, is that they love to use my "shiny" car as a toilet! :-(

A very nice photo anyway! Great composition and pleasant colours! A very nice framing too!

Beautiful work! Like!

Greetings from Norway,

Hello Omar thanks a lot for the excellent comment , not much hunting needed , they just arrive regularly and all I do is wait patiently with camera :)

Jos hallo, deze merels nestelen dus ieder jaar in onze tuin meestal met 2 een enst met jonkies ondanks dat wij een kat hebben, altijd leuk om te zien en ze zijn praktisch niet bang van ons , hippen gewoon dichtbij ons rond als we buiten zitten ,
