Red-winged Blackbirds at Wakodahatchee

The Red-winged Blackbirds at Wakodahatchee Wetlands seemed to be very curious about all of the humans milling around.  They flitted around the boardwalks, constantly scolding us with their “o-ka-reeee” calls. I was able to get within a few yards of some of them, which allowed me to get some detailed shots of their facial features.  I found their expressions to be priceless.

It looks like he is smiling at me.  (I bet he isn’t smiling on the inside.)
