G'day all

Over the last few days I have found two dead blackbird chicks in my 
garden (Hamilton, sw Victoria).  Both were only a day or so old.  The 
weather here has been cool and dry.  Why on earth are blackbirds 
nesting in April?  I wonder if they know something about the sort of 
climate we are going to have this year.

Any ideas...
