  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

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

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

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

    Great pics, Karen!

  29. 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.
