Beth, thanks for identifying Marlene's bird photo- I have never in my life seen a female red winged black bird!!! I just assumed both male and female were all black with the red shoulder strip.  She's beautiful! And a very nice photo, Marlene!!

Haha, Randy!  I do that too, but hubby always freaks out when I stop in the middle of the road!!  What they hey, nobody's behind....  LOL.  I brake for wildflowers and sunsets, too!

Marlene, I love that splash of red on their wings.   I see the females at my feeder but no males...not sure why. But I do see them in the marshes.  Doris, I've heard that too.

Oh my gosh, Heather, those birds are gorgeous!

Marlene, my stepmother always said that the true harbinger of spring is not the robin but the red-winged blackbird.

Hi, everyone!  I thought I would share one of the scenes from my backyard.  Doves and house sparrows getting what fell to the ground.

Hope you get some nesters in your pretty new bird house Lillian.  How fun to see the spring birds coming in.  We have a nesting pair of Oak Titmice in one of the bluebird boxes.  They just finished building the nest and I'm  anxious to see eggs.

"Thanks Elizabeth and Kathleen. These look nice growing in between other pink perennials (phlox, ecchinacea). They're like a "filler"."
