Red-winged Blackbirds

A flock of Red-winged Blackbirds visited recently. I rarely see them in my backyard, so this was a special treat. I rushed out and filled this tray with some sunflower and millet when I saw them trying to hang on my tube feeders akwardly.

They have a pleasing call.

A naughty Starling was trying to get some food too. Shoo!

This Mourning Dove wanted to see what all the commotion was about.

Have a great weekend!
