Blackbirds

Blackbirds are often seen in British gardens, being one of our most common birds, and they are loved for their pretty songs. We've got all sorts of fun blackbird resources here you can enjoy with the kids!

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.

Word Wheel Challenge 37

The target of our word wheel puzzles is to create as many words of 2 letters or more as possible, using the letters only once and always including the letter in the middle of the wheel.

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened
The birds began to sing -
Wasn't that a dainty dish
To set before the king?
The king was in the counting-house
Counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour
Eating bread and honey,
The maid was in the garden
Hanging out the clothes.
Along came a blackbird
And pecked off her nose!
