Orville the Blackbird

This little chap fluttered down for the first time today from his nest above our kitchen window. He landed on the garden table.

He sat there squeaking for a little while, then stretched his legs.

And then he hopped up onto the chair:

before flying away down the garden to a rather inaccurate landing in a bush at the far end.

Given how much energy his parents have been devoting to feeding him over the last couple of weeks, I think he’ll be off to a good start in life.
