April 13th, 2011 – Avian Friday: Red-Winged Blackbird
Springs arrival in the Pacific Northwest brings lots of bird activity and the Red-Wing Blackbirds are out in good numbers. While the males have a bit more striking color, the somber tones and textures seen in the females I find very attractive. Here is an image of one foraging among the cat-tails at Seattle’s Montlake Fill. Red-Winged Blackbird Seattle, Washington
