Camera Critters #16


I see this guy whenever I round the bend of the lake on my morning walk--he's usually flying by or flitting from tree to tree. Secretly I'd like to think he's happy I've come by again, but most likely I'm a bother. One day, though, he stopped on this boating sign and chirped loudly as only a Red Wing Blackbird can.
Check out the official Camera Critters site hosted by Misty Dawn for more critters--or join in the fun.

Been a long time since I've seen Baltimore Orioles none in Florida

Pretty red wing blackbird! (I'm glad you mentioned what kind because I didn't know)

He looks like he's singing his little heart out.

A bird I will not photograph, sadly as they are not around these parts. Boo Hoo! Instead I will pour over this beautiful capture.

Oh, if you click on him, then you REALLY can see him singing his little heart out. Sweet guy.

Great capture!

I saw about five of these at my birdfeeder this afternoon. They don't come everyday for some reason.

What a lovely looking bird. We don't have much birds here, so I share Babooshka's sentiments.

My critter is posted HERE. Please stop by if you have some time. Happy weekends!

Very nice shot of the redwinged blackbird, I see them everywhere around my area.

You always get such beautiful bird pictures. The birds here just fly away!

I love red-wing blackbirds, especially their song.

Dina said...

Aww Noni, I'm sure he is welcoming you with a song.

Marianne said...

I believe he's happy to see you!
