The nest of a blackbird



02. / 03.06.2003:
Approximately for one week, two blackbirds
reserved this sapling for their nest.

Only if you know it, and on closer examination ...

It is not very amused about the fact,
that someone discovered its nest.

Also, turn round is no use.

I will accompany the life in the nest.

As I visited the nest the next time,
the blackbird mum was leaving the nest.

The Blackbird (Turdus merula) as usual is a forester.
But tody it lives also in parks and gardens between you and me.

Same than in German,

to forage for food.

The last day in the nest.

Picture 23: The blackbird young ones after 22 Days


The squab in front looks enquiring to the camera.
Hey! Look to my brother,
(or is it its sister?)
in front edge of the nest:
"Is he allowed to do this?"
Yes, he is allowed to do this.
Now the squabs are old enough
and oversized for the nest.

25.06.2003:
The little blackbirds jumped out of the nest,
and hopped in the meadow and the close-by residential street.
Then, there began a procedur for hours.
Their parents asked them to fly on the trees.
After a long while, the little blackbirds attended their parents order.
And off and away they were.
Now the nest is empty.
And allways, when I see a blackbird,
I remember these days.

Picture 25: The nest now is empty
