Red-winged Blackbird

Agelaius phoeniceus

Description:

A stocky, broad-shouldered blackbird with a slender, conical bill and a medium-length tail. Red-winged Blackbirds often show a hump-backed silhouette while perched; males often sit with tail slightly flared. Male Red-winged Blackbirds are hard to mistake. They're an even glossy black with red-and-yellow shoulder badges. Females are crisply streaked and dark brownish overall, paler on the breast and often show a whitish eyebrow.

Habitat:

John Bunker Sands Wetland Center. Its mission is to both educate the public and provide research opportunities in the areas of water quality and supply, wildlife management, and wetland systems. The constructed wetlands include seasonal emergent wetlands, scrub swamps and flooded bottomland hardwood forest.
