The Ubiquitous Red-Winged Blackbird

The red-winged blackbird is one of the most common birds in the Appleton area. They are lovely and feisty, ready to defend their territory at all costs. There are frequent sky battles between them and red-tailed hawks. I realized why once when a hawk swooshed over my head carrying an adult blackbird in its talons.

Here's a photo I took on a walk with my wife along the Fox River on Saturday. Click to enlarge. After enlarging, notice the feet of this little creature--I find them especially beautiful. Also notice the wry little smile and the merry twinkle in his eye. This one was obviously in a good mood.
Great pictures.
