"Getting it's colour"

This male blackbird may be missing its brightly coloured orange beak but makes of for this with it's lovely eyes.

Great picture Tom...One of my favourite birds, when I take the dog out 4am ish. All the Blackbirds are sat on the ground and let you walk up to about three feet away from them...Then they just hop a few feet away and settle back down. It is as though they haven't the energy or inclination to fly...Where as the lapwings are off while you are miles away
