We saw these birds throughout our travels in Italy. Ironically, this partially leucistic bird was one of the first we saw. It was foraging in the grass in the Villa Borghese in Rome, Italy.
Interesting for us, hearing the song of the Eurasian Blackbird reminded us of the bird songs heard in the Beatles "Blackbird". Those sounds had never made sense to us before being more familiar with the American Red-winged Blackbird or Brewer’s Blackbird. Makes sense.
