Wild Bird Wednesday



Red Wing Blackbirds

 If I were to guess, I would say this is a juvenile judging from his or her  unsteadiness on the branch  ...




 And, if I were to guess again, I would say this is Dad, standing by to protect and teach ...



I didn't see a Mom around ... or did I.  Once again, I am only guessing :)

  3. Wonderful shots - one of my favourite books - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - features these birds in the first few pages. I was really pleased to see some in the feather a few years ago.

    My Little Plover is actually in Scotland, rather than Australia, so the names may come from a Viking background. And yes, this bird and the Killdeer are very closely related. Hope all is well, and glad you liked the Glasgow post.

  4. Great looking bird, and much more colourful than or European Blackbird.
