STOPS ALONG THE WAY

RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD

RW Blackbird

Another seasonal migrant, hearing the blackbird’s song in early spring gives all of us “Northerners” a lift! I usually see blackbirds perched on rushes or in branches. I spotted this bird on a log and it stayed put while I took some shots. Although their diet consists mainly of seeds, other plant material and insects, they will also eat small frogs, snails and mollusks. I think this bird was about to go on the hunt and wasn’t going to budge because I was close by.

  5. Nice detailed shot Belinda. UK Blackbird has a yellow beak as its splash of colour. Over past few weeks we have been greeted by its song to the morning and evening
