A traditional thrush, the melodious blackbird is a ordinary sight in gardens, parks and woodlands across the UK. Blackbirds are especially fond of feeding on lawns and can be seen with their heads cocked to one side, listening for earthworms. They also feed on insects and berries – place out a few ancient apples or plant berry-producing bushes in the garden to pull towards you these delightful birds.
A medium-sized long-tail hawk with small wings. V-shaped flies with wings, low over open fields and marshes, listening to mice hiding below. Distinctive foraging behavior in all plumage and conspicuous white rump patch. There are wet brown females. Adult males with black wingtips are gray above and whiteish below.
They have large, rounded wings, and they have long tails. The comparatively long secondary flight feathers give a curved or bulging look to the trailing edge of the wing; in flight, the wingtips may look pointed.
