Birds: Red winged blackbird

Red Winged Blackbird
This is one of several bird species that have been visiting.  He swoops down onto the front porch railing but he/she moves so quickly I can barely capture him in a photograph let alone by eye.

About Red Winged Blackbirds here.


  1. Isn't he gorgeous? The females almost look like wrens so you wouldn't even think they're blackbirds. WE have a lot of swamps around here and I see these birds sitting up in the cattails and reeds.

  2. Jen, the funny thing is we don't have any swamps, cattails or reeds nearby just an ole creek behind my house. They must be relocating. :)

    And thanks for stopping by.
