Red-winged Blackbirds

While it pours down rain today (yay!), I am getting settled into our summer home and decided I should clean off my camera cards. I thought I’d share one final wintery image with you of red-winged blackbirds perched on the fence outside my office window. This was shot during our last heavy snow (just 6 days ago). At least there is a splash of color there. That red wing was the only color we saw for a couple days.
I’m hoping for the color green to pop up soon. We’re getting some incredible moisture here lately and I’m ready for some new life to our earth out here!

    I feel bad for the poor birds getting wet.are they on the clothesline or electric wire? You captured them well.

    Love this image especially that the pop of color is flying away…

    Great shot! We have a lot of red winged blackbirds here in our spot of heaven in Delta, British Columbia. They are a major part of the bird population that I feed during the fall and winter. My other favourites are the ring necked doves that I enjoy immensely. 🙂

    I love red-winged blackbirds. Nothing says spring to me quite like hearing them make that recognizable chirp. Makes me think of the shore.
