Red-winged Blackbirds

Recently I have been enjoying the Red-winged Blackbirds at the Cutler Wetlands.  The males are stark black with bright red and yellow patched on their wings.  They like to cling to the cattails and belt out their lively “o-ka-leeeeee” calls.  Enjoy the photos, although the cattails turned out better than the blackbirds.
