Blackbird's Christmas Eve Feast

An early Christmas treat for me - I've been wanting to get some shots of birds feasting on Winter berries, but they've eluded me so far.  However, because of the snow, the garden birds are hungrier than usual and therefore less afraid! 

So I managed to get nice and close to this Blackbird as he ate his fill.

Although it seems this was just the appetizer before the main course action over at the other side of the tree!  This time, he meant business:

Right, I'm off to do some feasting of my own, and it probably won't be berries (or crabapples, as these red things might be).

Merry Christmas!
