2015 Critters at Bluebird Cove

Male Red-winged Blackbird in Back Woods
The males are the ones with the red patch on the wings. When they do their "Springtime Appeal" for a mate, their vocal call is accompanied by an outstretch of the wings and a fluttering. It looks magnificent from the front of the bird, but this one would not cooperate with me.
