A Blackbird

Blackbird, Fortezza Nuova, Livorno
Seagulls “own” the recently reopened Fortezza Nuova: this blackbird is one of the few exceptions.

Looks like there is plenty to eat for the blackbird too.
I love your animal pictures.

Nice close up.

We also have these birds around. They chase crows away, so perhaps they also handle seagulls.

Only a brave bird steals from gulls.

Are they as messy as gulls?
I bet not.

I'd much prefer blackbirds and their beautiful song to pigeons...

I love seeing them. We had a family that nested in my MiL's yard this year.

Wonderful capture! Blackbirds are quite common here too.
