  1. I see these red winged blackbirds at the lakes all the time. They love to talk to me with their squawks and squeaks. Great shots of the mister and misses, Donna!

  2. Excellent shot of both M & F. I like these birds, they come back every year to my backyard. 🙂

    • Thank you, Takami! They are beautiful singers of our marshes. It’s really neat to see a flock in flight, their red epaulets are flared and dot the scene of the black blur of hundreds. 😊

    • Thank you, Jane, me too! My first time seeing a female RW Blackbird, I did not know what it was and had a hard time IDing it until, duh, wow! Love their differences! 🙂
