I took this picture of a red-winged blackbird at Marblehead (Lakeside, Ohio) last Monday. This is one of my favorite birds because I saw so many of them on the farm near Fredericktown while I growing up. The surprising thing about this fellow is that he landed right beside the picnic table where I was sitting. Apparently, lighthouse visitors leave him a lot to eat this spot so being around people doesn't bother him, as you can see in the second photo
I'm glad you got a picture of him. Red-winged Blackbirds were on my list to get pictures of in the near future. Thanks a bunch!
