Blackbirds

What do they look like?

Male blackbirds have all black feathers and easily identifiable bright yellow bill. Females are much browner, with speckles on the upper breast.   

What do they eat?

Blackbirds love worms so mealworms are a great treat, but they also eat berries, apples, seeds and high energy foods like peanuts and fat. They will happily come to your bird table so choose foods like mealworms, peanuts, mixed seed and fat ball treats.

Where do they nest?

If you would like Blackbirds to nest in your garden, they like trees and hedgerows, but will also nest in large open fronted nest boxes.
