Red-Winged Blackbird


Recently some pretty blackbirds have joined the visitors to our feeders. Red-winged blackbirds are said to be one of the most abundant native birds in North America but I really haven't seen that many.

  4. A sure sign that spring has arrived where I live :) I call them Army Generals, with their trumpet sounds and the bright badges on their wings. Great picture!
