On behalf of
(who sent in an email) can anyone help to identify this bird.....
This morning I saw a plain brown bird similar size to a blackbird but in fright from my car it lifted its tail in a fan and on the under side it had white spots near the end of each tail feather. Please can you help me identify this bird?
I saw it in a wooded area near the fell above Allendale Northumberland.
(BirdId Comment) - sounds like it could be a female blackbird (but cant find a match on the "white spots" ) - but, as always, very happy to hear other opinions.
Can anyone help with the identification?
