Blackbird in the bushes

Blackbird in the bushes

A very busy blackbird stopped still for 5 seconds so I could catch a photo of it. He was digging around, throwing up leaves and hunting around between branches. Building material for a nest perhaps?

A crow watches for crumbs on the ground at the Blarney Woollen Mills today. The white gazebo/tent is gone but it was good to see the (permanent?) outdoor covered seating next to the building still there.

Frank Flaherty

Frank Flaherty is pictured above feeding pigeons on Daunt Square in 2019. He was recently approached by a litter warden who told him to stop feeding the birds because local businesses complained of excessive bird poo and feathers in the area.
