Female Red-winged Blackbirds

We've had some regular male red-winged blackbird visitors at our feeders in the past couple of years, but we hadn't ever seen a female before last week! I looked out and noticed something a little larger than the "regulars," the house finches. Once I started noticing all their features, I became very excited! Female red-winged blackbirds! The male was also close by, probably watching his territory. I wasn't able to get a picture of them on the feeder, but I was able to catch them on the trees behind our fence. I saw another female on the feeder today, but I didn't get to my camera quickly enough. I'm hoping for a next time!
