Mr. and Mrs. Blackbird don’t come together very often. Yesterday was one of the rare occasions I could take a pic of them both sitting pretty close. He was a bit tired though when I took this shot. Kept snoozing off, conserving his energy in the cold.

Today I finally found out where they spend the night. When it’s getting dark they retire to the bicycle shed! Clever birds! I was hoping they’d go there cause it offers protection from wind and rain, and it’s probably less cold in there too. It’s also safer, especially with New Year’s Eve coming up. In those last years I always found dead birds that had gotten shot down by fireworks. I hope the blackbirds will stay in that night.
