Red-winged Blackbird not a black blob finally
2

Have tried and tried to get a proper shot of these birds and keep getting the close-but-not-really award for detail. Feathers on a black bird have been hard to capture.

So I set out this morning just after sunrise to try again. These birds hang out near an overflow creek in the park I frequent. Normally these birds are very territorial and will tell you to stay away and will not let you get near.

This is the the standard warning I got this morning just before the guy flew off in a huff.

This one, however, stayed still and actually let me get somewhat close. The feathers are not dark masses!

But the red...someday I'll find out that the red is not feathers and really is a blob.

Every new day is a gift!
