I don't know if this is unusual behaviour but I seem to have attracted a gang of blackbirds to my garden. From what I have, (very briefly) investigated in my bird book and a couple of websites, blackbirds are territorial so I'm wondering why they seem to be moving in a gang. There are about 4 males and 1 female. The female also seems to be chasing the male, which again I don't think is the norm. Does any more knowledgable person know if this is normal behavour? Maybe part of their mating ritual?
