[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le Carouge à épaulettes est le plus répandu de nos oisaux noirs. Fréquente les terrains humides. La femelle qui est très différente quant à sa livrée peut très bien être prise pour un gros bruant.

The Red-winged blackbird is the most common of our black birds.Breeds in marches. The female is quite different and can be mistaken for a large sparrow.

Bonjour Serge,
Il me semble qu'il manque un tout petit peu de profondeur de champ mais le sujet n'en est pas moins relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Serge,
this is a marvellous shot indeed! The colours are well rendered and the sharpness is so well composed. Thr blsck feather is just simply wonderful in giving a good contrast to the greyish surroundings. But what I like mos is the patches of bright colours emerged from the wings. How exciting to see the probble that nature offers. You did well in making me appreciate the view so much!
Its a new specie for me.
