Nothing says spring to me like the sound of a redwing blackbird. The past few days they have been in my yard by the hundreds
They’ve been cleaning up around the feeders.
Although there’s safety in numbers they are a cautious lot and spend much of their time landing and taking off.
The sight and sounds are amazing. Add it to a 60 degree day and I can almost breathe a sigh of relief but there’s still way too much snow. Mud season has only reached my driveway.

Have you ever run into a song called “Red-winged Blackbird?” I prefer James Keelaghan’s version, but this is what I found on YouTube. When I lived outside Chicago, the arrival of the red-winged blackbirds was a surer sign that winter was finally on its way out than any robin.
:0). Yup and we’re supposed to get snow tomorrow.
