Hi Folks , today I have this image of a Male Red-winged Blackbird , as I mentioned in my previous posting of a blackbird the birds where engaged in their mating behaviors , this fella stops for a nervous glance at me , while posturing over his territory. a male may come and challenge his territory by coming on to it , and a female may challenge his dominance by trying to leave his territory , either will result in a chase. watching the game of chase is really something to see with the red-winged blackbirds , they are quite impressive fliers...

thanks for having a look

Hi Art,

What a special bird! I like the red parts on the wings. A black bird is never easy to catch, but you caught this one extremely well. My compliments.

A quintessential marshland scene: red-winged blackbird on a cattail.
Nice composition with natural colors and good eye-contact.
TFS. : )
