STOPS ALONG THE WAY

FEMALE RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

19 Comments

Red-winged blackbirds are among the earliest migrants to return in the spring. We see the males first and often hear their song before we spot them. The females are often found further into the woods gathering nesting material. Their colouring is more subtle than the males but just as beautiful I believe.

  3. Very Nice! They are fun birds to photograph! And to watch. Usually I see more males, so it is nice to females posted instead of the male!

  6. Beautiful bird and smashing shots. They remind me a little of the Streaky Headed Seed-eater.

  8. I envy you having all these birds so handy. Beautiful photos! Red-winged blackbirds have such a lovely call. Do these young ones have any kind of a call yet?
