Red-winged Blackbirds

I am linking to Anni's Bird D'Pot and also Stewart's Wild Bird Wednesday. You can find Anni here and Stewart here.



I had a fun time observing the birds at feeders during our road trip.  These were mainly Red-winged blackbirds and a few sparrows.

  3. Nice photos of the redwings. We see them here, too. They nest in the reeds along our creek and come to the feeder sometimes, too.
