Red-Winged Blackbirds on Foggy Fences
When I visited the Laguna last week I saw an abundance of Red-winged Blackbirds. I wondered whether they already had spring feelings. The males were active, calling their unique call and spreading their wings so that the red parts were very well visible.
It was a very foggy morning, but that didn't keep them from flying around and making a lot of "noise". I actually like their call; it's very unique. You can listen to it here.
This photo is completely blurry, however, I wanted to show you what it looks like when these birds fly - isn't the red of their wings just amazing?
They were not only sitting on fence posts but also on the dried up plants in the Laguna - perfect perches for them.
Can you see the fence back there in the fog?
I'm linking up with Theresa's Good Fences over at the Run A Round Ranch.
