Weekly Photo Challenge (theme of the week)

Unique pied blackbirdOur Unique Blackbird. Mostly white, actually. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen him for a while. We think the females rejected him, as he took over our garden from the resident bird but didn’t stay in the summer. He came for two winters and we felt privileged to know him.

By the way, in reference to the theme of my blog: be careful of the meaning of words that you use. Unique should only be used if there are no others exactly like your subject. It should not be qualified at all. Nothing can be quite or very unique; it is or it isn’t. This bird was unique. There are other birds that have partial albinism but no two are the same.

I felt sorry for him because he was rejected by his own kind, not recognised because he was different.

I expect that a lot of people understand how that feels.
