Droopy wing
It seems ages since I last showed you a garden Blackbird.

What happened to this guys wing I've no idea, unless a cat got to him. I can't remember seeing him since so, hopefully it's better now, or maybe sadly he's departed.

oh oh.. Not a pleasant sight, but he otherwise looks quite OK. We have one rock pigeon with this condition here - been visiting our birdbath for last so many months - very active and his flight doesn't seem to be affected by this deformity/injury
