I have several male blackbirds in my garden all of which come to stuff their beaks with worms - which I provide - and fly off to (probably) feed their nesting mates.
However, since yesterday I have had one solo male bb which has been in the trees, singing the entire time. It doesn't come down to eat. It just perches on a high branch and sings. Constantly.
I wonder if it had a mate which it has lost and is perhaps advertising for a new mate.
Does anyone have any knowledge of such behaviour? It's really rather poignant.
