Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)

Another bird from my trip to Canada, this time a more common bird that is also found here in Arizona.


t breeds from Alaska and Newfoundland south to Florida, the Gulf of Mexico, Mexico and Guatemala, with isolated populations in western El Salvador, northwestern Honduras and northwestern Costa Rica. It may winter as far north as Pennsylvania and British Columbia, but northern populations are generally migratory, moving south to Mexico and the southern United States.
