Blackbirds Don't Know How To Relax

I see that the blackbird was today named the nation's early bird in a survey of over 6,000 gardens across Ireland and Britain.
Listeners to the BBC Radio 4's Today programme were asked to record which species of bird were first to arrive at feeding stations after dawn.
The results were taken on the shortest day of the year,December 21st.
Apparently blackbirds arrived for their morning feed 13 minutes after sunrise,with the robin arriving 16 minutes after sunrise.

The poor old blackbird needs to learn to appreciate the joy of sleeping in late.Lord knows I have.
The blackbird should remember this wise quote,"The early bird gets the worm;But in the end the worms get the bird."
