RED-WINGED BLACKBIRD

Not going say too much now, too busy with organising things and having a beer but here's a few pictures of today's Red-winged Blackbird...tomorrow is looking mental to say the least!
Once found, it quickly settled into a routine of feeding out of view in an Iris bed and once flushed, flying like a dart, straight to land on these gas canisters (perhaps she likes the colour?!), showing very well for 5 minutes then flying straight back to the same spot in the Irises...organised flush anyone?

Mental? Not an appropriate comment. Ask the GP if unsure.

I dunno. I've seen a lot of redwinged blackbirds & this bird isn't quite the right shape for me. I'd make it a song sparrow -- a lot of variations there, & the google photographs for both birds show a lot of overlap in coloring
