The blackbird is a popular songbird. Every year it announces the start of spring, and on sultry summer nights its singing can carry you away. That is, if you’re a bit of a romantic.
Did you know …
A blackbird couple can often be seen looking for worms together. The male has a lofty black colour with an orange bill while the female is less striking, coated with red-brown feathers. Doesn’t sound very fair, does it?
What is the best place for the blackbird silhouette?
The blackbird loves to have a mate, but if you give it a cosy spot where you can see it well, it will be happy, too. When you have selected the perfect spot, you just need a hammer and a ladder to put it there. You don’t have to do anything else to enjoy your new bird. You don’t even have to feed it, but you can if you want to. The food will probably be eaten by its living friends, though.
What is the blackbird silhouette made of?
This blackbird silhouette is made of weathering steel, which develops a nice layer of rust when exposed to the weather. When a layer of rust develops on the tough steel of our turdus merula, it looks just like a female. We are curious to see if there are any interested suitors for her.
The blackbird silhouette is 21 cm tall and 29 cm wide.
