Male red-winged blackbird on cattail
The wetlands are alive with red-winged blackbirds. These males are lookouts for females that are building nests and sitting on eggs. The top one is very concerned and warning the neighbourhood that I am out and about.
It's not quite as crisp as I would have liked...but he wasn't sitting there very still and the light was not great. :)
Male red-winged blackbird on reed
This second one is a tad less worried about me and my camera...NOT! He was about to fly away.
