Red-winged Blackbirds Return

The red-winged blackbirds have returned! They arrived in my yard on March 2, 2008.

I finally pulled the pictures off of my camera, and holy cow, I'm in love! I'm so glad they're back!! I swear it's the same one that came back first last spring. They're my "spark bird" - the bird that got me into birding. He's so handsome!!!

First Red-winged Blackbird of 2008
Click the photo to see more - there are a handful of pics of him up on my Flickr.

I heart the red-winged blackbird!!

Please, spring, come soon!

We finally got RWBs on the marsh last week! All we need now are some brown-headed cowbirds, spring peepers, and fireflies, and I'm firing up the grill!
