Red winged blackbird male

Agelaius phoeniceus

Description:

It belongs to Passerine order of birds. A passerine is any bird of the order Passeriformes, which includes more than half of all bird species. Sometimes known as perching birds or – less accurately – as songbirds, passerines are distinguished from other orders of birds by the arrangement of their toes (three pointing forward and one back), which facilitates perching. Male bird is known for its black colour and red wings. Female is smaller in size and brownish in colour and might get confused as sparrow.
