Blackbirds

Parent Category: Birds
Blackbirds are common birds of forests and suburban lawns, open country. The common blackbird of Europe is a thrush, while the various North American species are allied to meadowlarks and orioles in the Family Icteridae.
Between 10 and 19 days is commonly quoted amongst birdwatchers but eggs hatched in aviaries invariably take 14 days. While a longer incubation period for eggs laid in habitat could possibly be the result of disturbance, a shorter incubation period than 14 days is exceedingly unlikely.

Very interesting question. A group of blackbirds is most correctly called either a cloud, a cluster or a merle of blackbirds. Because they are so similar to ravens and crows, they are also called a murder, but this is not the most correct term.

If you can't find worms, try jelly meat (yes, the cat food). Sugar water (or honey water) in small quantities is also good. To get the baby bird to open its mouth, touch the side of its mouth where beak hinges. Make sure bird is warm at night. Good luck!
