I'd say first year mating birds as they are most likely to make such a mistake.

The cat brought this poor wee thing to the door this morning.


That reminded me. Many years ago I went into the back garden just in time to see next door's cat walking down our lawn with a blackbird in its mouth. I managed to free the blackbird which flew into the nearest tree. Its feathers were all ruffled and stayed ruffled. We christened it 'Scruffy'. Whenever I went into the back garden it would fly down and stay on the lawn all the time I was there. It was with us for a number of years.

07:30 this morning we had a veritable feeding frenzy in the garden on the feeders. Three different species of tits, dunnocks, starlings, blackbirds, sparrows, goldfinch, greenfinch & robins. Never seen so many birds in one spot :D

Slightly off topic and I really shouldn't but couldn't help myself. Whilst away over the last week in Portugal we had Collard Doves cooing every morning outside the villa. My 75 year old mother-out-law said at breakfast after the second or so day that she recognized the call as she heard the same birds back home. I told her not to be daft as these were Portugese birds and had a completely different accent..... I knew they sounded different she said, do the ones from Antrim understand these one..... What like when they are on holiday.
