First Year Red-winged Blackbird

I’ve been noticing Red-winged Blackbirds that aren’t completely black and the red-winged part isn’t as bright.  After some research I’ve reached the conclusion these are Red-winged Blackbirds in their first year of adulthood.

Eagle Season

This time of year, May through early July, Eagles stay near their nests to care for their Eaglets.  It makes it somewhat easier to get photos of them.  This year, however, getting a good shot or even an opportunity at a good shot has proven illusive.  With the workweek winding down and the weather looking better this weekend than the past several weekends, hopefully that illusive shot will present itself.

It isn’t for lack of trying or from not being where they are that I haven’t been getting shots.  In the shot below an Eagle and an Osprey can be seen working the same patch of lake, but on the other side of the lake from where I was.

That same Eagle then flew across the lake toward its nest, but took the long way, avoiding the spot where I hid.

Not that I’m complaining, because I very much appreciate living in an area of the world where I can see these birds, I’m just trying to impress upon you, my dear followers, that by early July the Eaglets will fledge and then it will be more difficult to get photos of Eagles.

Winter Wren

Winter Wrens are tiny.  So tiny I had a tough time seeing him, but makes up for it with a big noise.
