something i learned recently,

something i learned recently, is that blackbirds and i guess other garden birds would have moulted most (not all) of their juvenile feathers by now, and therefore will be displaying their 'gender plumage', so a brown blackbird in november is a female.

White patches -

blackbirds of both sexes often have white patches, sometimes quite extensive, but usually like this. The head and neck are "popular" places for them.
