[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red-winged Blackbird, Agelaius phoeniceus, is a passerine bird of the family Icteridae found in most of North and much of Central America. It 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 (wikipedia.org)

Hello Mircea,
We have a lot of red-winged blackbirds here, and I love it when they puff out their wings, show off their red spots, and sing out from their heart, I have tried to take this very picture for the longest time, but have not succeeded yet. Your image encourages me to persist.
Great POV and wonderful moment caught.
TFS. : )

Salut Mircea, interesanta pasare. Faptul ca are capul bine conturat, mai putin aripile insa, ma face sa cred ca da din aripi in timp ce canta. Pozele pe negru si alb sunt destul de dificile, de aceea apreciez mai mult poza cu o pasare din salbaticie, greu de apropiat de ea, cu culori dificile, decat o poza cu o pasare invatata la hranitoare si pozata de pe fereastra. Apreciez fotografia ta si banuiesc, nu ti-a fost usor sa o faci. Daca ma insel, spune-mi.
Succes, Dan

Hello Mircea , very strange and funny photo , good detailed black tones , very sharp , TFS.
