Male Red-winged Blackbird

My Saturday Bird this week is the Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus). The species is found in most of North America and much of Central America.

Northern populations are migratory heading south for the winter. This is a male singing to proclaim his territory and attract a mate having just arrived in central Saskatchewan, Canada in the spring.

We have never seen red winged black bird. They seem to be quite rare, we suppose.
Thanks for sharing.

They’re a North American species with no records for Europe. They’re a common species in suitable habitat. We have lots around here in the summer. The first males arrived a couple of weeks ago.
