Photographer's Note

This evening I escaped from the coronavirus arrests and went to dinner with my brother. He lives at a permitted distance, only 100 meters from my house, but obviously family reunions are prohibited. In his small garden I found this beautiful surprise. A young blackbird that is learning to fly but fortunately has proved very collaborative. Considering that the treknature site hasn't been working for a month, I thought I'd put it here, also to show something recently. A different photo in the WS.
The common blackbird (Turdus merula) is a species of true thrush. It is also called Eurasian blackbird (especially in North America, to distinguish it from the unrelated New World blackbirds),or simply blackbird where this does not lead to confusion with a similar-looking local species. It breeds in Europe, Asiatic Russia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to Australia and New Zealand. It has a number of subspecies across its large range; a few of the Asian subspecies are sometimes considered to be full species. Depending on latitude, the common blackbird may be resident, partially migratory, or fully migratory.


Questa sera sono evaso dagli arresti coronavirus e mi sono recato a cena da mio fratello.Lui abita ad una distanza consentita, a soli 100 mt da casa mia, ma ovviamente le riunioni famigliari sono vietate. Nel suo piccolo giardino ho trovato questa bella sopresa. Un giovane merlo che sta imparando a volare ma che fortunatamente si è rivelato molto collaborativo. Considerando che il sito di treknature non funziona da un mese, ho pensato di metterla qui, anche per mostrare qualcosa di recente. Una foto differente nel WS.
