«I want meat!» A female «Eurasian Blackbird» is looking for food. A roadkilled fox is perfect for her!

  9. Wow! A Blackbird on a dead Fox. Great shots Hans, and not too easy to shoot a dark bird in such a pale background. In my garden, other than seed, they eat the cat food that the cat no longer wants!

  11. egentligen tycker jag honan är finare än hannen. Jag gillar de fina tonerna i hennes dräkt.

  22. Gorgeous shots of the Blackbird Hans! It’s not easy to do with that ultra white background. A very intriguing photograph with the fox carcass.

  27. Beautiful photos, Hans! I’ve never seen this bird before.

    april 3, 2013, kl. 17:49

  28. She has very subtle differences in her coloring from the blackbirds we see here … but her behavior is the same. They scavenge for their food and they are survivors. Beautiful pictures of a stunning bird.

  29. Great images, Hans! Very nice exposure between the dark bird and white snow!

    april 4, 2013, kl. 00:14

  30. Wonderful photos! I agree: the contrast between the snow and bird made for a great shot!

    april 4, 2013, kl. 03:41

  31. Nice picture – I like the one on the roadkill fox – its a very different setting for a blackbird.

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW- Stewart M – Melbourne

  32. She can invite the whole flock to party! But I still think she will settle for the bread!

  33. Great shots of the blackbird in the snow.
    We have a nest of the blackbird with two youngsters in our garden. It’s wonderful to hear the youngsters when one of the older birds comes with food.

  34. Looks like she needs company for a party. Love the bird’s contrast against the white snow.
