red-winged blackbird

Posted by Picasa

Yesterday in the park my boyfriend and I saw a red-winged blackbird. We didn't know what it was, but based on the picture of the adult one in the link, I'd guess this one was pretty young. If you click the link on "listen ot the songs of this species," you'll hear it make the weird squawks it made when we took its picture. It was a good day for bird-watching in Prospect park. We also saw a robin fixing her nest in a pretty flowering bush.
