This is not a pie recipe! This is a visual celebration of one of our most common birds; one that almost every person can recognise and name; one that loves to sing its happy tune in our gardens and parks. There have been songs entitled ‘Blackbird’ (the Beatles, 1968 song, for example); films and plays, books, poems and short stories (too numerous to mention); people with the Blackbird surname; places named Blackbird (in England and the United States); planes, yachts and locomotives with the Blackbird name; even sports teams and personal computers (Hewlett Packard’s Blackbird 002). What a contribution this humble bird has made to the world!
