It's been a long week and half since my hard drive died on my laptop. I'm finally up again though I did lose some pictures. I guess the lesson is to backup your computer more often.
I was visited by this male Red-winged Blackbird at one of the Bald Eagle nests last weekend. He was really showing off his red wing probably to attract a mate. In the first shot, he is calling and puffing out his feathers for all to see.
Update: If you have read the blog for a awhile, you know I have a nesting pair of Red-shouldered Hawks in the woods behind my house. It looks like one eyas has fledged. I witnessed a noisy soaring lesson between one adult and one juvenile over my house this week. I'm hoping I can get a shot of the juvenile soon. Happy Memorial Day weekend and Happy birding!
