Red Wing Blackbird

Red Wing blackbird in pond bulrushes
Spring, 2011

It’s not all bad when the redwing blackbirds are building their hanging nests in the bulrushes around MistyIsle pond, but — DAMN! Spring was sure late coming this year, and it was a grey, chill, wet mess for most of April!

On the bright side, the pond is high & higher. There’ll be lots of water and cover for the nesting season.
