elegant bird with a melodious song, the Common Blackbird can be found
in Europe, North Africa, India and southern China.
While winter food is available, common blackbirds will stay within their territory for the year, although they will occupy different areas.
This species lives in very varied habitats, including mountainous regions and big city centers, where they inhabit open forests and forest edges, cultivated areas, gardens and parks, if the cover is dense enough for hiding. Common Blackbirds are diurnal and eat mainly on the ground, turning the leaf litter to find the invertebrates hidden below.
