Red-wing Blackbird

I just loved listening to this red-wing blackbird sing his song over the marsh area I was walking on!
Interesting facts about this bird:
The Red-winged Blackbird is a highly polygamous species, with one male having up to 15 different females making nests in his territory. A male fiercely defends his territory during the breeding season. Some birds may travel as far as 80 km (50 mi) between the roosting and feeding sites.
Thanks for stopping by, your comments and favs are always appreciated!
