5. The Blackbird

The Blackbird is one of the best known British birds, its dark shape as it hops about on the lawn seeking worms being a familiar sight. The cock with his black plumage, orange-yellow bill and orange encircled eye, is a handsome fellow, also a good parent, assisting his mate in finding food for their brood and in the care of the young, which are fed chiefly on worms.
