I could not beleive my eyes last night whilst driving along a country lane. A male blackbird had been killed by a car and was lying in the road. Female was sitting on side of road looking on. A huge crow was picking over the dead male when suddenly the female flew at him and began to attack him. Even when he flew away she was still having a go at him in mid air.
What feisty birds these blackbirds are and so devoted to their mate.
Made me feel very sad. I know the crow probably had a nest of babies to feed as well - that is just nature.
