Red-winged Blackbird, A Balancing Act

Red-winged Blackbirds are year-round residents of the Chesapeake Bay region.

It is always a treat to see and hear them around our marshes and wetlands.

  1. Beautiful photo, Donna. Lucky you to have Red-Wingeds all year around. When I first hear them singing in the spring, only then does the season seems official.

    • Thank you, Lisa, I know what you mean about their spring singing, they are so excited is mating time! They make me feel the season has official begun too with their song. πŸ™‚

  2. Lovely photo, Donna. RWBBs are only summer visitors here. They are my harbinger of spring and I rejoice when I hear the first one arrive in March. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Eliza! Ours tend to be a bit quieter through the fall and winter, so they are still a welcoming sight and sound for us in the Spring also. My harbinger too! πŸ™‚
