Still trying for those red-wings

Best effort first: This female must have seen what I was doing because she sat patiently while I tooled around trying to see her in the reflections of my sun-blanked view screen. Without her vanity, I never would have gotten even this shot.

The male decided he’d better keep and eye on his lady, so he perched high on a rush and surveyed the scene. Not much detail, but his handsome shoulder patch shows well. Maybe I’ll have better luck on an overcast day.

There are quite a few red-winged blackbirds around Woodbine Pond. They are NOT hard to find, but they move quickly and constantly.

  1. We do keep thinking about Point Pelee, Brian. Maybe this will be the year Danica and I pay a visit. Of course Danica has been before, as a girl who grew up in Windsor. I have never been.

  2. If you go, Abby was wondering if she could tag along. After bird watching you can all go to Tunnel BBQ. Jack Newby’s fave.
