                                                                 At times I retreat to my "shell,"
                                                                 Clinging to the security of being alone.

                                                                 In my shyness . . .
                                                                 I may attempt to merge with my surroundings--
                                                                 To be ignored, unnoticed, a silent voice rarely heard...

Common name: blackbird      Scientific name: Turdus merula      Family: Turdidae (thrushes)       

As the name suggests, male blackbirds are entirely black in colour. Females, however, are actually dark brown, with lighter brown streaks on the breast. Juveniles look similar to the fully-grown female but have copper streaks. Males have a bright yellow bill and distinctive yellow eye ring. Females have a duller, yellow-brown beak.

I blame E*****e for the problems :( It's also the reason I've not answered so many comments as usual. Check out my journal entry "The stumble has become a fall..."

Maybe a little shy or perhaps it's an illusion created by the capture :?

I am thankful to find quotes/poems/song lyrics that add to the story of my photographs. The context of the bird in the tree adds to that story I think Day122 - Tree

It's wonderful, the quotes are amazing and it adds to the story as you said :)

The context looks like it adds to the bird since it looks shy in a way :)
