|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The common blackbird (Turdus merula) is a species of true thrush. It is also called Eurasian blackbird. It breeds in Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to Canada, United States, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, the Falkland Islands, Chile, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It has a number of subspecies across its large range; a few of the Asian subspecies are sometimes considered to be full species. Depending on latitude, the common blackbird may be resident, partially migratory, or fully migratory.|
The male of the nominate subspecies, which is found throughout most of Europe, is all black except for a yellow eye-ring and bill and has a rich, melodious song; the adult female and juvenile have mainly dark brown plumage. This species breeds in woods and gardens, building a neat, mud-lined, cup-shaped nest. It is omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects, earthworms, berries, and fruits.

Excellent sharp detailed photo of this Common Blackbird. Splendid light and colors. Attractive eye contact.
Well captured this common Common Black bird. Nice POV with splendid light. Excellent BG too. Another beautiful bird photograph...
Thanks for showing,
Beautifully capture with excellent detail, composition and DOF. You managed to capture the glint in his eye which I think is important (not that I always do ;) We have several Blackbird species here too and it means spring his here when they show up.
A very net by an excellent BG also details what a lovely brown colour well done MARIUS SECAN
