Black-winged Blackbird at Huntley Meadows

We were over at Huntley Meadows last Saturday.  It is one of our favorite places to visit during the year and at every season there is something marvelous about the place.

The first time I saw the Red-winged Blackbird all those years ago I was enthralled.  You can read about him here.  They were everywhere and we got quite a show as nesting season is in full swing.  We watched numerous times as they disappeared into the underbrush, presumably to take care of their young.
