I am happy to announce that Mr. Blackbird has resumed visiting my balcony on a daily basis. I guess he’s pretty content he gets his favorite food here – grapes and raisins. Today he spent some hours in composing mode – very softly (with closed beak) trying out new melodies for next years spring chant. I hope the feathers on his head will grow back before it gets really cold; otherwise I might have to crochet a tiny beanie for him.

I just went to the kitchen to get some tea only to find him sitting in the middle of the room! He flew out the moment he saw me though. I guess if the balcony door was wide open day and night, he’d seriously consider moving in here. 😉
