Here's a bird that can have up to 6 mates at once. They spend any free time sqauking at people to scare them away from the females on the nest.

Hi Trevor

Excellente exposition afin de pouvoir voir les subtilités du plumage de ce Carouge. Très bien réussie comme composition et bon piqué. Merci.
Bye et au revoir JP

Hello Trevor,
Gorgeous capture. It is a lovely composition with one of the most interesting and lovely birds species I have never seen. Blackbirds living in Europe are entirely black, but specimen has a lovely red color on his wings. The details and focus are perfect.
Thanks for sharing!

Hallo Trevor,
a very beautiful capture of the Red-winged Blackbird, very good sharpness and brilliant colours
Best regards

  • Great

Hello Trevor,
Even though these guys are plentiful here in Ohio, I never get tired of watching and listening to them in the mornings behind our house.
There are about 40 acres of field that they love to nest in during the late spring months. The males are sure protective of their nesting sites, and will fly in circles overhead squaking the whole time until you leave.
Love this attractive image you managed to capture. Colors are true and nature and the overall composition is pleasing to view. Great work!!

Hello Trevor

Excellent photo of this male Red Winged Blackbird,
fine POV and framing, excellent details of its dark plumage, TFS


Hallo Trevor
Very interesting note you have on this bird. The combination of colours in this Red Winged Blackbird is really very beautiful and is not only eye-catching but also has magnetism to it. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
