[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red-winged Black Birds migrate south from here for the winter. The males return in mid to late February to stake out their territory . It looks like this guy came back a little early. We had a a snow storm a few days ago and this Red-winged Black was just trying to get something to eat.

It's not easy being a bird.

Hello Bob,
I like the way you caught this male Red-winged Blackbird peppered with snowflakes as he feeds while it is snowing. Excellent composition and great sharpness that is marred by the snowflakes in front of the lens.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
From one old-timer to another!
