Ruby Tuesday - On a Wing

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Taken on our recent outing to The McLane Creek Nature Trail, I felt lucky that this beautiful Red Winged Blackbird held still long enough for me to take his portrait.

  1. I've never seen a blackbird with red! Ours are... black with an orange beak!!!

    I love bird photos but never can seem to get close enough before they fly away :)

  3. Jacob Says:

    Just excellent, Don. We've seen lots of these here, too, but I've not been able to get a photo of one!

    Re your comment on Ocala DP - Are you and Brattcat criticizing the sartorial splendor of Ocala's residents?

    It's so darn hot you're lucky we wear any clothes at all!


  4. Perfect catch for Ruby Tuesday. MB

    He's gorgeous! I've seen a few here and they do move fast.

  7. Hilda Says:

    That red is very striking against his black!

    I doubt if my eye's good enough to spot birds, but I know I'm going to enjoy the many parks around the Toronto area. We're staying in one of the suburbs, and it is sooo different from Manila. It's the little things that get me: fir trees, maples, dandelion, geese! Then there's the wide open spaces — wow. (I'm waiting for my husband to get dressed so we can go out and commandeered his laptop.)
