Blackbirds are often seen in British gardens, being one of our most common birds, and they are loved for their pretty songs. The male blackbird is black with a bright orangey-yellow beak and ring around his eye. Female blackbirds are brown and spotty, which is a bit silly!
You can see blackbirds everywhere apart from the highest mountains, and you'll see them all year around too (although you are most likely to notice them singing in the spring time). Once a male blackbird has established his territory, he tends to stay in one place and defend it.
Here's a simple blackbird dot to dot that even the youngest children can complete. Follow the numbers 1 to 10 to complete the blackbird's body.
