A good blackbird is hard to beat. I think it doesn't get the respect it deserves because it is such a common bird, but when you have a good one, they are like the Al Green of birds. You get a lot of variation in them - don't know if it comes with age or what, but I had one a few years ago that stood out as just so much more soulful than most. I still miss him.We take a glass of Shiraz up by our pond and listen to a Blackbird serenade the passing of a nice day.
Definite bird of the day.
