Excellent photo, the subject has great details and you capture it with low POV, perfect BG and wonderful colors.
I have seen one Red-winged Blackbird here in twelve years. He was at the feeder and took off before I could get a shot. You did a fantastic job on this one and the seed in his beak makes it even more special. Pose, colors and details are all excellent. I love the greens of the background and the composition.

Great capture Ron!
Nice low lateral POV, fine sharpness, lighting, diffuse BG, focusing and excellent composition make this a great portrait of a male Red-winged Blackbird.

A classic shot Ron. It has food in its beak. You really got close on this one. Very nice in sharp. It brings out the colors on the wings well. Good old Ohio. It never let us down. Keep on sending me my memories.
Another very nice shot of the birds we see every day and often overlook as photo subjects. I live across the street from a small marsh, so I see and hear these all the time, but have never bothered photographing them, been concentrating on plants, mushrooms and bugs too much I guess.
A very nice, sharp shot!

Congratulations on capturing such a sharp capture with only a 200mm lens - even with the crop factor. I can't seem to get anywhere near that close to a redwing.
At our house we have a lot of red-winged blackbirds.we like to shoot the bird. nice pic caleb
