Common Blackbird

Turdus merula


This is a Common Blackbird who's got black feathers, a yellow beak, and some feathers around it's head and neck that shine purple and blue in the light.


I've been seeing this Common Blackbird flying from tree to tree and roaming on the ground looking for worms, and the shine of it's blue and purple neck feathers caught my eye.
