Red-winged Blackbird

I mentioned a few days ago that I had enjoyed the rich whistles of the Red-winged Blackbirds while out at Swan Lake. Here is a photo of one of them resting between songs. If you click HERE you can hear a recorded version. It is not, however, anywhere near as rich and melodious as our Swan Lake Blackbirds so, if you live in Victoria, I suggest you go out to the lake and hear them live.

We have them here on the east coast as well. I love them.

SRQ from Sarasota Daily Photo showed one just yesterday, three thousand miles southeast of you.

One cool-looking bird. Classic black with a 'colour accent. And is that one sharp beak or what!
