Another seasonal migrant, hearing the blackbird’s song in early spring gives all of us “Northerners” a lift! I usually see blackbirds perched on rushes or in branches. I spotted this bird on a log and it stayed put while I took some shots. Although their diet consists mainly of seeds, other plant material and insects, they will also eat small frogs, snails and mollusks. I think this bird was about to go on the hunt and wasn’t going to budge because I was close by.
