I am hoping I am right in saying this is a young blackbird and below he is sharing my stream with a young starling.

Certainly looks like a baby Sheila, well done! it is very difficult sometimes, as the babies can look like the female! I had one in my garden i thought was a baby, and it was collecting food!! so must have been the female!Lovely pics, especially the one in that magic stream of yours x

Yeah, got to agree it's a baby blackbird. Adult females have a yellow beak (not sure about those that are 1 year old though, the males seem to have one part yellow, part brown).

Lovely photo of the juvenile Blackbird Sheila, nice to see the juvenile Goldfinch too and I'm still envious of the Tree Sparrows!

Magic shots yet again Sheila on this post and the previous, I would ID that little fellow as a young blackie too!!. Wait until the woodpigeons find the tray on your feeder they are quite comical as they struggle to hang on!!!
