Red-Winged Blackbird

Agelaius phoeniceus


This was just ONE tree that was covered in blackbirds! It was neat, but it was LOUD!

Thanks! I think that's the female. I know we have flocks that have starlings and grackles along with the red-winged blackbirds, but I think these guys were all red-wings.

I should have figured it was at the farm! I saw one of these guys up in Broomfield yesterday! I want pictures too! Yours are great Is the birds in the middle/upper left a black bird too or is he different?
