Red Wing Blackbirds

First of all, thanks to everyone who left a comment on my previous post. I enjoyed reading each and every one of them.

The Redwing Blackbirds are back at the feeders. I only see them at the feeders at certain times of the year. The beginning of Fall seems to be one of those times. This is probably a migration time for them and they are passing through.

  1. It is that time of year. Redwings are such beautiful blackbirds. I bet you are baking up a storm since it has cooled off. Excuse me while I go bake some muffins. :)

  2. I have a feeder just like that. The Carolina chickadees just love the hid in the holes. Mary

  3. Hi Phillip, I wish they would come to my bird feeder. I grew up in California where there are a lot of them. Enjoy!

  4. Mary, isn't that the greatest feeder? The birds love it.

  5. I use to see Redwings all the time growing up in Wisconsin, but have not seen any since coming to NC many years ago.
