|Mummy Blackbird with a baby sticking it's beak out of the nest|
It's interesting that the Blackbirds don't care about other birds near the nest, even the large ones like the Wood Pigeons. Magpies definitely upset them though! I guess they know they are trouble and will steal the eggs or chicks. I just hope the Magpies aren't clever enough to know that upset Blackbirds mean a nest is near by ... I guess we shall see!
