Red-winged Blackbird

I saw this Red-winged Blackbird in a "marshy" area at the 
Izaak Walton Park in Christiansburg, Virginia

I like the way his tail fans out in this one :)

I like bright red colour on the bird's shoulders; it is interesting detail which make the bird more beautiful. Well done, Kerri, as usual!

I feel like my Green Cay Wetlands birds have come up to see you. First the green heron, now the red-winged blackbird. Did he sing you a song?

Your bird photos are just great, not easy! I usually see these in our fields driving to work, I love them.

Oh I love red winged blackbirds - they are so pretty. There are some that live by me in a cloverleaf by the highway. I see them there all the time.
Great picture!!

Lots of those birds out here and they are a good looking bird. Not too popular with rice farmers though. LOL! Great pictures.

Gorgeous, Kerri! We had one land on the feeder a couple days ago! That means Spring is near.
