The Singing Blackbird

Blackbird, port of Livorno
This blackbird was singing loudly in a tree, inside the Porto Mediceo.

We have a lot of them around the square where I live. THeir song is really nice. You also got an excellent shot of him/her. The eye is perfectly in focus - the way it should be!

Such nice sharp photos.
I wish a blackbird would pose for me.
They just go "Caw" and fly away.
