Bob the Blackbird’s story

Meet Bob. Bob is a blackbird. He has a condition called leucism, which caused his feathers to lose their pigmentation.

This is his story.

Bob wasn’t always white. In fact, he started out black, but gradually changed colour over period of months.

Bob likes to have baths.

Bob is always showing up to check on us. Sometimes he waits outside the window.

Bob even had his photo in the local newspaper.

We did a silverwork course and made a brooch in Bob’s image. In hindsight, we should have made Bob a lot rounder.

We designed some Bob t-shirts for his local fans (my dad and me). We put them online and asked people to vote for their favourite.

Then we had them made. They turned out great.
