Description

I have seen many Red-winged Blackbirds in my backyard; however, none that looked like this. To my knowledge, this is possibly a young (first year) male Red-winged Blackbird…or at least that is my best guess. I invite you to let me know if I am right or wrong. If I am wrong, kindly identity this beautiful bird for me.

Young Red-winged Blackbird?

Camera shy, but I finally got him!

One response to “Young Red-winged Blackbird?”

  1. It appears to a pied Red-Winged Blackbird. You can read more about color variants here: http://feederwatch.org/learn/unusual-birds/#color-variants. Also, the orange feather tips indicate that is is a juvenile. Lovely bird!
