[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, in this photo it is the female
of the Red-winged Blackbird, this photo was
shot exactly day for day one year ago.

1/1250s f/7.1 ISO1000 50mm (35mm eq:75mm).


« One of the most abundant birds across
North America, and one of the most
boldly colored, the Red-winged Blackbird
is a familiar sight atop cattails,
along soggy roadsides, and on telephone wires.

Glossy-black males have scarlet-and-yellow
shoulder patches they can puff up or hide
depending on how confident they feel.

Females are a subdued, streaky brown,
almost like a large, dark sparrow.
In the North, their early arrival and
tumbling song are happy indications of
the return of spring. »

Hi Asbed, Excellent shot of this Red-winged Blackbird in flight. Great details and clarity shown even in the difficult light condition. The BG is bit busy but it is very original and quite natural for its habitat. Thank for sharing
