Description

This one has been clearly killed by crushing its head. Labour Day celebration? If in any way related, there was Finns Party event here yesterday.

Right foot appears to be broken. Have to check if this is the same one with broken foot that has regularly been around.

EDIT: Looks like this was the same foot injured one that has been here years, and also seen this spring, but not afterwards.

Description

Partially crushed between window frame. Very eager to move but couldn't immediately move all feet or fly. I'm unsure if it could recover so I left it between cover at shadow and exposed to birds.

Seriously feeding on plastic. Taken away, there was nothing digestable in it. Later noticed left foot injury. Otherwise seemed robust, but based on behavior generally possibly not ok.

Found inside from mall window, released to nearby vegetation.

There was several more, but this could be resqued as it wasn't constantly flying away.

Possibly same one I already saw incubating at nest nearby, but just now realized it can't fully close it. Still capable of eating/swallowing nearly normally, and capable of defending its territory, for now.

May 28, 2024

Description

Stayed here observing for longer than usually as I was afraid the active nestling will prematurely fall. Wondering what's wrong with parents left eye - could eager juvenile feeding have caused it? There was nothing similar noticed three days earlier. Also, maybe female tries to stay as far as possible to avoid hurt (or just leaves the room for juvenile)?

Description

Wing seems firm but not yet in full flight condition. Did climb to shrub, singing, alarming crow, and eventually flew 20 m starting from 1.5 m high. 1/2

EDIT: Suspected nesting terminated already. There was no visits to nest or gathering food.

EDIT2: There's notable white/bald spot above left eye that wasn't there yesterday, possibly related to events around nesting?

Blackbird (Turdus merula)

Observer

Date

May 25, 2024

Description

Wing injured male (left) was flying again, not perfectly, flying was still little "ineffective", but did full flight to other park across the street and later back, and generally moved normally flying shorter flights too. Unfortunately its' nesting terminated recent days, suspected crow provocating disturbance caused by park maintenance.

EDIT: There's notable white/bald spot above left eye, first time noticed two days ago, possibly related to events around nesting?

Yes. I wonder if it would be best if this field focused on injury and the other on developmental deformities and abnormalities.

Posted by jon_sullivan about 8 years ago

I was thinking of merging the two, but instead decided to try and use the two for the different aspects (perhaps a little strained as some deformities might be caused by an earlier infection or injury). Perhaps we don't need 'Anomaly' as part of the field name here anymore.
