Sam creates a blackbird costume and puts it on, while Nole confesses his darkest secret: he bullied a girl in high school name Christine, who was poor and wore second hand clothes. The whole class would whisper Shhh to her SH for second hand.
He even went as far as putting a mole in her locker as a prank. Sam is angry, due to him also being bullied for his long legs, not wanting to wish the pain of being bullied onto anyone else.
Sometime after, Nole is informed by his new girlfriend, Amber, that Sam had gotten run over by a train, while wearing the costume. Nole visits the scene and finds blood on the tracks, which uneasily reminds him of the plot for their movie. Nole also starts seeing black feathers floating everywhere, almost as if they were following him.
At night he has awful nightmares where the Blackbird watches him from the corner of his room. He even has nightmares of being taken into another realm and tortured.
He runs to the middle of his college campus, yelling out to the wind about how regretful he feels, and is caught by a policeman. Nole comes up with an excuse, telling the cop that he was worried for his friend.
Nole, with the help from Christine's father, finds Christine and apologizes for bullying her. Christine forgives him, stating that she ended up stronger and more confident after overcoming the bullying. Sometime later, Sam is found. He reveals that he didn't died, but rather had broken a leg. Nole apologizes to him as well for mocking him the other day.
Sam then reveals to Nole his darkest secret; he too was a bully once, plotting revenge against people who wronged him. Nole and Sam start to tease each other, reflecting about how much they've grown, and then decide to go eat some pizza. Nole states that he hasn't eaten since before noon, and Sam questions him. Nole simply says that it's a long story and he will tell Sam about it sometime. It pulls earthworms from the soil, usually finding them by sight, but sometimes by hearing, and roots through leaf litter for other invertebrates.
Small amphibians and lizards are occasionally hunted. This species will also perch in bushes to take berries and collect caterpillars and other active insects. The nature of the fruit taken depends on what is locally available, and frequently includes exotics in gardens. Near human habitation the main predator of the common blackbird is the domestic cat, with newly fledged young especially vulnerable.
Foxes and predatory birds, such as the sparrowhawk and other accipiters , also take this species when the opportunity arises. This species is occasionally a host of parasitic cuckoos , such as the common cuckoo Cuculus canorus , but this is minimal because the common blackbird recognizes the adult of the parasitic species and its non-mimetic eggs.
As with other passerine birds, parasites are common. Common blackbirds spend much of their time looking for food on the ground where they can become infested with ticks, which are external parasites that most commonly attach to the head of a blackbird. The common blackbird is one of a number of species which has unihemispheric slow-wave sleep.
One hemisphere of the brain is effectively asleep, while a low-voltage EEG , characteristic of wakefulness, is present in the other. The benefit of this is that the bird can rest in areas of high predation or during long migratory flights, but still retain a degree of alertness. The common blackbird was introduced to Australia by a bird dealer visiting Melbourne in early ,  and its range has expanded from its initial foothold in Melbourne and Adelaide to include all of southeastern Australia, including Tasmania and the Bass Strait islands.
The introduced common blackbird is, together with the native silvereye Zosterops lateralis , the most widely distributed avian seed disperser in New Zealand. These communities provide fruit more suited to non-endemic native birds and naturalised birds than to endemic birds.
The common blackbird was seen as a sacred though destructive bird in Classical Greek folklore, and was said to die if it consumed pomegranates. Sing a song of sixpence , A pocket full of rye; Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie! When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,. Oh, wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king? The common blackbird's melodious, distinctive song is mentioned in the poem Adlestrop by Edward Thomas ;. Of Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire.
In the English Christmas carol " The Twelve Days of Christmas ", the line commonly sung today as "four calling birds" is believed to have originally been written in the 18th century as "four colly birds", an archaism meaning "black as coal" that was a popular English nickname for the common blackbird.
The common blackbird, unlike many black creatures, is not normally seen as a symbol of bad luck,  but R. Thomas wrote that there is "a suggestion of dark Places about it",  and it symbolised resignation in the 17th century tragic play The Duchess of Malfi ;  an alternate connotation is vigilance, the bird's clear cry warning of danger. A common blackbird can be heard singing on the Beatles song " Blackbird ".
A blackbird can also be heard along with a woodpigeon on the Kate Bush song " Aerial Tal ". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
