Red-winged blackbird with prey

Agelaius phoeniceus


This guy was so proud of his catch he just sat there and flaunted it. Insects are a major part of their diet.


Spotted at the edge of a wetland at Flaming Geyser State Park.

Great spotting Brian! Looks like a tasty stonefly :-)

He or she is waiting there for you to go away, 'cause it doesn't want to reveal its nest where the babies are expecting those mouthfuls! Great photography Brian!
