This is Mrs.Blackbird just a short while after one of the neighbourhood cats tried to eat her. I'm not sure whether the cat did get one of the young but I can't otherwise see why Mrs.Blackbird would have placed herself so close to the cat. Had Mr.Blackbird not alerted me (and everyone else within a hundred yards I would guess) to the situation maybe she'd have been an ex-blackbird too. As it was, his shrill shrieking called me into the garden where I scared of the cat before really realising what was going on. They're both still around and there are still at least some young. It's not easy being a London Blackbird. Canon EOS 40D
