|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)|

Hola Mircea. Bellos colores muy naturales de este hermoso pajaro. Mucha nitidez a pesar del uso del 2X.
My screen is one from a laptop right now; the black areas of the bird do not have a lot of detail.
That said... very colorful and well composed image.

What a great POV, Mircea.
A perfect perspective to show off the "red wing".
I like the pose of the head. It looks like he is trying to see something/
Sharp details and excellent exposure.
A good range of values in the black plumage.
TFS : )
