Red Winged Blackbird

June 8, 2015

I have seen the Red Winged Blackbird in large flocks before, but never one all alone... and certainly never any where near my house... but that is exactly what happened this weekend as we were heading back home from a little trip to Starbucks. There are a number of large fields in an trucking/industrial park when going the back way home, and I always scan them as I drive by. I was super surprised to catch a glimpse of red on the shoulders of a blackbird on the phone wire. I knew right away it was the Red Winged Blackbird... but here? So neat! He was singing away... perhaps looking for more of his kind... but there were none to be seen.
