Red-wingeds in the Salt Marsh

In June, it’s all about the Red-winged blackbirds in the salt marshes here on the Cape.

Their songs ring out in the marshes, and the striking black-red-yellow color contrast of the males against the green spring grass can literally take your breath away.

Happy Sunday!  😉

Red-Wings in the Fog

I love Red-wings.

And I love fog.

Yesterday morning, early, I had the gift of them both at once in the marsh along Red River.

The sounds of the Red-wings pierced the thick salty air as they called back and forth to one another.

Through the fog the birds seemed somehow larger than life; the colors more vivid and their songs, amplified.

I stood there, enraptured.

It was magical.
