Male Red Winged Blackbird.

Hello,

So, I have been trying to get a picture of a male red winged blackbird for awhile. Every time I did, I was unsuccessful.

Until today.

This kind of bird is very pretty in my opinion, that is why I was trying to get a picture of it.

You really managed to get a lot of the red on his shoulder.

That was actually quite difficult to do. I kind of had to sneak up on the bird and try to get the shoulder in the picture with the red. Believe me, it was very difficult. However, I was able to do it.

It makes me wonder why male red-winged blackbirds have that stripe on their shoulder.

Regardless, it's gorgeous.
