Our World Tuesday


We had some glorious weather that past weekend, so on Sunday I decided to pick up some lunch and head to Cascades Park. This little Red-winged Blackbird was under one of the picnic tables snacking on a french fry, but when I sat down, he flew up into one of the nearby palm trees and watched me eat my lunch. When he flew, the red color on his wings was much more noticeable. He also did a bit of singing while he was sitting in the tree. Once I was done, I walked away and he flew down under the table again to finish his own lunch. I might have left a few pieces of bread behind for him, as well as some lettuce from my sandwich.

Linking to Our World Tuesday.

Oh, I didn't know red-winged blackbirds would eat French fries! I thought only gulls did that! ;)

We see them up here as well- this time of year they'll start getting quite territorial even with passing humans.

Red-winged Blackbirds are a noisy bunch, but they sure are pretty. Tom The Backroads Traveller

The palm and palmettos are familiar sights to me, but I haven't noticed the bird around here.
