|Lunch time for Blackbird family. Nikon D7000|
There are two baby blackbirds from the 'Patio' family bouncing around in the garden now.
They tend to hide under bushes and then dash out when they see mum coming with some more food.
Xena has been coping very well considering that often the chicks will be sat on the floor just looking up at her! There must be a great temptation to chomp on them, but she has left them alone.
Hopefully the local cats will do the same, but given their recent performance with daddy blackbird, I am not so sure.
