This is Mr. Blackbird, taking a lunch break on my balcony. He really loves raisins! I seriously hope that blackbirds can’t get diabetes, because he really eats a lot of them. I am now his fully acknowledged distributor and protector of grapes – fresh or dried. Why protector you may wonder? Well, a pair of pidgeons has also discovered that my balcony is kind of a bird paradise. And they seem to like raisins too. However, I don’t like to have pidgeons there, so I shoo them away. Mr.Blackbird just sat on one of the flower pots, without ruffle, watching while I was waving my arms at the pidgeons.
