I like this picture of Blackbird because the body shape (proportion) is good recorded. I would like to create this black bird by using papier mache technique.

You can make life much easier for blackbirds by mulching your flower beds with leaf-litter, keeping your lawn mown, planting fruiting shrubs and trees (especially dense, thorny ones) and planting climbers against walls #homesfornature

Great spotted woodpecker. About blackbird-sized and striking black-and-white. It has a very distinctive bouncing flight and spends most of its time clinging to tree trunks and branches, often trying to hide on the side away from the observer. Its presence is often announced by its loud call or by its distinctive spring 'drumming' display. The male has a distinctive red patch on the back of the head and young birds have a red crown.

Dierama pulcherrimum, Blackbird. Full sun and in a warm, sheltered spot. Flowers June to August. Angel's fishing rod is perfect for introducing movement to a well-drained border in a sunny, sheltered site, or for overhanging water. Initially slow to establish, it looks particularly good with early autumn-flowering ornamental grasses. More: http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/dierama-pulcherrimum/classid.2694/
