Camera-Critters #68: Red-Winged Blackbird

I noticed the Red-Winged Blackbird for the first time at the marsh land of South Cape Beach. They are very alert, the only clear view I got they were high up on the tree top.

I finally got a closer view at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. I was walking on a broad walk over the marsh land, apparently the Red-Winged Blackbird has a nest close-by. It hovered just above my head and wanted to scared me away. I was able to get several very close and clear photographs of it.

What a striking bird. UK blackbirds are just that - black! Well, the females are brown . . .

Great shot. Aren't they wonderful. I used to see them on Galveston Island. I haven't seen in Houston.

Nice one, I like your photograph of the Cape Cod ( Highland ) lighthouse too, that sea looks very rough but its a nice colour.

You have some great pictures and I have read some of your technics on your photography. I shoot a D-80 but as soon as I can afford an D-300 it is mine.
Thanks for the advice.

That is a nice picture. The only ones I get are the females at the feeder or under it in the snow and the males high up in the trees. This is a stunning picture.
