“Blackbirds are nearly blue”

Description from Julie Shane: The blackbirds are out scavenging near the local eateries. So many customers are "treating" them to tidbits. I just stood and watched as they perched and hopped and fluttered. In the sunlight, the blackbirds were nearly blue. Almost peacock. Almost iridescent. I was mesmerized!!!

    They really are beautiful birds, ..intelligent…cunning….cocky. Nice to know someone else doesn’t think of them as just a pest.

    Nice pick. You changed your avatar. I didn’t know who you were at first.

    I didn’t either!

    I love to watch the birds…Julie, you are right…blackbirds are shimmery blue! Lovely pick!

    Hi Deb and Susie. This is the avatar I use for my school sites.

    Glad someone else sees the lovely shades of “not-black” in blackbirds. Isn’t nature wonderous?
