Red-winged Blackbird

I love the song of the male Red-winged Blackbird. And they are especially fun to photograph in the Spring as they allow you to get closer than other times of the year. This is especially true right now at RNWR along the same stretch of the Auto Tour where the Soras and Virginia Rails are found. The blackbirds love to perch on the Cattails and there is short area where they are commonly right along the road.
Even some females got into the action during my last visit. Females typically stay a little more hidden down in the reeds and brush.
