Blackbird. Male blackbird (Turdus merula) perching on a branch. The female is a mottled brown colour. This bird is found in Britain and throughout Eurasia. It inhabits moorland, woodland and parks, and has adapted well to life in inhabited areas. This has made it very common in parts of its range. It feeds on a variety of foods, including fruits, berries, insects and worms, and can reach almost 30 centimetres in length.
