One little blackbird

The past week I have woken up to the sound of one little blackbird singing his heart out.  For a very plain looking bird (no fancy colour feathers), they have the most beautiful song.  I feel like this little bird is singing just for me when in actual fact he is probably trying to impress the lady birds.  Well this lady is very much captivated by his song. 

Here he is sitting in the sycamore tree in our front yard.  Another of life's little moments to enjoy.


  1. I love the birds too. We have a huge Moreton Bay Fig Tree (not real figs) in our back yard that plays to all types of birds. I always feel so fortunate when I hear unusual singing from there. A bit like your question of what makes you happy for 60 seconds. Cherrie

  2. They really do lift the spirits don't they.
