I cannot understand their behaviour. Mildred has done at least three nest in the space of a month, but no eggs as far as I can tell ! WHY ? and now she seems to have disappear Question

I'm no expert, and I've never heard of this sort of behaviour. I wonder if it could be a bird with a maternal urge - but she hasn't found a mate yet? Or maybe she'd paired up, then the male disappeared?

Strange ! They have been a couple since January ! I have watched her from the window making all these nests in different bushes the last one being in my garden
Now George still comes and feed (in the garage...I leave the door open and he and the robins pop in) but she 's not around as much
I really think Blackbirds are crazy...I'll stick to bluetits
