On a frosty perch

It was early in the morning, and this Red Winged Blackbird was kind enough to pose on a frosty fence post for me.

Great catch!
Did you hear of the terrible loss in numbers of this species to some freak occurrence south of the border? I haven't heard yet of the cause.

Yeah - that was crazy. 4000 Blackbirds fell from the sky in Arkansas! NASTY.

The sun is really glowing off its shoulder patch! Some of our goldfinches are brighter than others...probably the differences between male, female and immature.

I think this is good enough to be featured on the homepage, but it would be best if they wait till you have the 10K view mark on the woodpecker :o))
