What a big difference. Stunning shots!

Gorgeous birds - and another male hogging the striking plumage I see. Thank you for showing us both.

Jim said...

Marvellous captures.

It is amazing how different they are - love the male's little flash of colour :)

I like that you've shown the two, male and female. Very nice shots, Karen!

Margaret Gosden said...

Difficult to see that they are related!?
Beautiful shots, nonetheless.

love these birds (even when they descend by the hundreds to my feeders!) the females have such intricate color patterns, even if the flashy boys get the name.

Hazel Ceej said...

Gorgeous birds! I love the black guy.

I don't think I ever realized before that this was how the female RW looked! Now I can't wait to see some so I can ID them myself. We tend to see them in huge flocks in Oregon, and I guess I just thought the females were another species.

MyMaracas said...

Beautiful shots! And I didn't know the females looked like that. We see lots of males at the feeder. I'll keep an eye out for Mrs Redwings now.

Lovely photos!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

I must admit, I've never ever seen the female of this species. But, no matter, love their song. Great images

NatureFootstep said...

nice to see a female too. The males are so obvious. You can see the same shape of the heads on both.

edenhills said...

Great shots. I've had tons of the red-winged blackbirds scolding me while I walk in the pasture.

Carver said...

Pretty shots of the Redwing Blackbird couple. I think the male is handsome. Love to see them in flight, showing off their colors.

Les... said...

handsomemale, stunning female! *S*

she has similar markings to our Aussie wattlebirds *S*

Me said...

What a difference in these two birds. Their both beauties!

Ken Schneider said...

Nice pair of blackbirds. It's easy to understand how some people mistake the female for some kind of a finch.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

Fabulous!!!

Daniel LaFrance said...

I'm glad you posted both pics. There is so much to learn.

Great pics, Karen!

pattisjarrett said...

They are beautiful birds. We have a pair nesting nearby. The male comes by every day, he announces himself with his shrill call. I've seen the female a couple of times.

Daniela Augustka Blah said...

I like it. Nice shots.

Digi-Irma said...

These are mentioned in opening pages of one of my favourite books - I'd love to see them in the wild.

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW

Handsome birds, and for once in the birdworld the female is just as good looking as the male.
