I just love this photo. And I’m quite impressed the bird managed to find dirt in all that snow.
Blackbirds, like all thrushes, love nothing more than to burrow amongst leaves and in dirt in search for earthworms. They do eat seeds from the feeder, but only when needs must.
Giliell, professional cynic -Ilk- says
It was the last real snow and as usually I put out one cup of birdseed in the feeder and one on the ground for all the birds that don’t go into the feeder. Within an hour the chaffinches and blackbirds had made the snow in that area disappear.
