Wallace Stevens gave us thirteen ways of looking at a blackbird.Now the blackbird would simply like to speak for itself.
It was evening all afternoon. It was snowing And it was going to snow. The blackbird sat In the cedar-limbs.
Bird culture is surprisingly stagnant. They were singing the same songs decades ago when I was a kid. But then again, so do I.
I love red-winged blackbirds. Just to get that little flash of red when driving along the road improves the day.Toy
I see that your red-winged blackbirds up in Wisconsin can't hold a tune any better than the ones here in Virignia.
One of my favorite birdcalls. Don't suppose you could get a meadowlark next?
For the past two years we have been blessed by a large flock(hundreds!) of red winged blackbirds flashing their red and yellow at us as they swing around the end of our living room.Very cool.
The birds are out, including the ^%$#&*!@ hawks. One was patrolling overhead as the puppies were out and The Blonde gave her usual warning, "They only think they're an endangered species. Just let them come near my dogs...".JAL said...

Speaking of birds, how 'bout those Boston College Eagles? They sure spanked Wisconsin in the NCAA hockey final last night!
Goldfinches are never in a bad mood.
A favorite song for me too! If you take a birdsong, and slow it down, you'll find that there is always a ton more going on that you are able to hear. It's fascinating.If you like more info, check out Don Koordsma's book "The Secret Life Of Songbird". It's fascinating.
