Article summary

Two blackbirds' fledglings born in early February were observed in Louvain-la-Neuve in 1999. Eight other observations of the same kind are mentioned in the AVES files. Blackbirds' winter breeding is a rare phenomenon which can be explained by the propensity of species laying several clutches to start breeding as early as possible.
