The Red-winged Blackbird is one of the most abundant birds across North America, and one of the most boldly colored. The picture of this Red-winged Blackbird in Flight was photographed at the Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey. This Red-winged Blackbird was photographed with the Canon 5D Mark IV and the Canon 100-400 II lens.

It was great to see a Red-winged Blackbird at the New York Botanical Gardens this weekend as this is an indication that spring is on it way – especially since it is supposed to snow in New York City today. Not exactly sure when this guy has taken this pose. It could be that he is “playing dead” – he did fly off right after I took this shot.
