A large flock of red-wing blackbirds arrived about a week ago, and have been hanging around our birdfeeder ever since, singing for their suppers.  You can't see them in this video, but you can sure hear them!

Our wetland is a perfect nesting area for the red-wings, so we generally get to enjoy hearing their songs all summer, though not in the numbers we have currently!  These are probably migrants and will continue heading north in coming weeks. It's sure nice that they stopped to sing for us for a time.

Last weekend was the first time the red winged blackbirds came to our feeders. We always see them down the road near the barn, but never at the house. They really do have a beautiful song and we always welcome a new bird to the feeders.
