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.
