    Help with Blackbird and BirdNET issue?

    Hi, I have a recording here and BirdNET in Raven is detecting it as a Blackbird (with a low confidence score). I have never heard a blackbird make this type of call before, is this a mistake or do they produce this sound and why? Thanks in advance.

    One of the little rascals who enjoy my raisins. She looks a bit surprised. Normally do they only see me when I put out their food. Not used to me with my camera. Snowing the whole day. Not an option without a waterproof camera housing.

    At the substation pool in March (the heavy rain which was forecast recently didn't persist, so the pool's just a puddle at the moment). Thank you for your comments, good birding! John
