Bird Pic Of The Week

Red-winged Blackbird

(Agelaius phoeniceus)

Where: Cape May, DE • Cape May State Park

Notes: I have always though of this scenario as the quintessential Red-wing shot. What more would visually express this blackbird's habitat preference than a cattail perch. On that day on a walk with my son we came upon this bird apparently aggravated by a Common Grackle in its territory, perhaps near its nest. This male bird few from one cattail to another, stopping only to vocalize its "conkereeee" song as it followed the intruder from a few feet away. This went on for ten or fifteen minutes because the Grackle seemed un-intimidated by the Red-wing's efforts to ward it off. This presented ample opportunity to photograph this brilliant bird on numerous different perches, most of them cattails.
