Red-winged Black Bird

This bird gets spooked so easily! These are some of the best pictures I've ever gotten of him. We can usually hear him at our feeders before we see him as he has a distinctive song. When I grab my camera and he sees movement, he most often flies away. I love the vibrant red and yellow colors next to the black!


  1. Nice pictures. I wish Red-winged Blackbirds came to my feeder.

  2. I think it's because we're near a little water. They are beautiful! I was lucky enough to see several females at our feeder yesterday and will post a few pictures soon.
