Red-winged Blackbirds
The coming weeks should see thousands of red-wings returning north from wintering their grounds to begin the nesting season.

Males arrive first, singing to establish territories and attract mates. Females arrive two weeks later.

On their migratory flights north, males seek out harvested fields to feed on waste corn.

This red-wing nest was interwoven among rushes just above the water line at a small farm pond.

During much of the year, red-wings do not display their red should patches. During these periods, only a sliver of pale yellow shows on the wing.
