Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie!


Tuesday breakfast with the birds features Double bar Finches.
(I wish I had a better set of lenses to do them justice)

These little birds measure in at about 8 cm and generally live in open grassy woodland.
The dish they're in is 30 cm (12 inch) in diameter.

Whenever they descend on one of the feeding bowls I always think of the old nursery rhyme of the 4 & 20 blackbirds baked in a pie! Posted by Picasa
