One Word Sunday


This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Blob.

On seeing the prompt I seemed to recall a 1950s horror movie called The Blob so I thought I would have some fun with it.

Female Red-winged Blackbird

My Saturday Bird this week is a female Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus) and is a follow up to my Saturday Bird two weeks ago which was a male Red-winged Blackbird.

I waited two weeks to post the female because the males normally arrive some time before the females. This allows the males to set up territories before the females arrive.

This female was photographed in central Saskatchewan in the spring.

Throwback Thursday

Nest Building

My Throwback Thursday post this week is traveling back to spring 1987.

I spent part of the spring documenting the nesting cycle of a pair of Eurasian Blue Tit.

In this photo one of the adult birds is bringing moss for the nest. It appears that one bird prefers moss and the other dried grass. It also appears that each bird builds one side of the nest.
