The Red-winged Blackbird Star
He was not shy. The red winged-blackbird is a handsome passerine in the colorful Icteridae family. I think their most common sound is weirder but many professionals hear teeree. They also have a dit sound. I caught this fellow's show at Flaming Geyser park just outside Auburn, WA.
January 21, 2018. He cried like a baby. Not over my pictures, though they didn't turn out the best. I'm not sure if he was making a mating call or what. But I found him by his cry. This star was at Flaming Geyser Park. My dog Katie and I were walking for her pleasure and I tried to get a little birding in. The red breasted sapsucker was a natural diva with his active pecking and calling. I was just the camera crew.
Some parking lot beauties.
