Wow, it's October already! Where has the time gone? Pretty soon winter will be here and the cold and blah. Well, enough of that. This is a male Redwing blackbird that I was able to photograph in Minnesota this June at a nature center in the reeds by a pond. He was sitting there calling, most likely to the female who was also around. It's about the closest I have ever gotten to one, they are very skittish birds.
