World Bird Wednesday



Enjoy and Participate!

I love the Red Wing Black Bird Families.  They come to my feeder in hoards ... I call them my Bully Birds.  But, what I love is when I go to the wetlands where they nest and sit and watch them on the reeds.  Males are notorious for dive bombing intruders, but they are used to me coming now.  Sometimes a male will come and hover over my head, but then flies back to guard the nest.  Unfortunately I can't see the nests.  they are way down in the reeds, but I see the babies when they start coming to the feeders with Mom & Dad.  Next years even bigger hoard of Bully Birds ... oh my!





















That's All Folks ...

  1. Wonderful shots, Andrea! I like how they perch on the reeds. And the females are just a pretty as the males.
