27 Jun 22 - #30DaysWild Day 27 - Sometimes It's Good To Just Chill For A Few Minutes

I went out into the back garden in early afternoon & found this chilled out Blackbird enjoying the sun. It is one of the two males which share my garden. It was so chilled, that I had time to go back, grab the camera & get some shots from about three metres away. I wasn't sure if it has clocked me & wasn't worried, as one of the two males is fairly tame & used to me. But it clearly was alert & wasn't bothered, as it immediately spotted the other male when it flew into the hedge. Sunbathe over, it went off to intercept it.
Blackbird: Male. This is thought to be a good way to deal with parasites & helps with their feather maintenance
