      This fieldfare was feeding on an apple in my garden in Bowerham this morning. Not sure if it’s a male or female. Any suggestions.

          Nice shot Steve– my guess is that it’s a male because of the blackish (not dark brownish) tail feathers and perhaps the extent of black in the face, ‘collar’ and chest sides.

          The top of the head has some relatively heavy speckling and streaking– which I believe is a plumage trait of male FF.
