Beautiful Red-Winged Black Birds

I saw these black birds near the ducks and swans by the river. They all seemed to get along very well, and were very used getting fed by humans. Whatever foods the ducks and the swans missed, these birds snatched them up quickly, and flied away.

I am pretty these birds are called Red-Winged Black Bird, though some of them had orange or yellow markings on their wings. They were beautiful to watch since the rest of their black feathers glowed under the sun.

These red-winged black birds are not that shy around their animal friends, but they definitely don't like to see humans' shadows. They flew as soon as one took a step.

The quality in these pictures are not that great, but what do you expect from a point and shoot camera?

Enjoy other entries at Camera Critters, and Bird Photography Weekly!

  19. Very nice capture. It's simple gorgeous.

  20. They are beautiful birds, aren't they? I never tire of watching the ones near us. It's been fun following the changes in behavior as they mate and settle into raising their young.

  21. Are there's birds territorial ?? I have been working by an area that's what would seem theses birds have made their home and I'm getting attacked. Same spot on the back of my head. Is there any way to deal with this as besides from well less then ideal methods. Thought pls.

  22. It would this very bird is what is attacking me while I'm working. They don't seem to afraid of me and when I'm working by these birds it's non stop. Any thoughts on how to prevent or stop this behavior ??

    1. Hi Nathan,
      I have these red-winged blackbirds around the neighborhood and at my feeders. They are shy around me, and usually took off to the smallest noise.

      Maybe your're too close to their nests..
