Day 23

A Red-winged Blackbird singing, actually, he was probably calling out his territory but it sure sounds like a song.

Oh, yeah, when they get all puffy in the throat like that, that's the territorial call. Once had one never let me pass without dive-bombing my head a few times - admirable birds, they have a goal in life and they go great guns for it. :) I really like this composition, with enough reeds scattered lightly around the frame to hold the eye, but not so much to keep that little guy from standing out.

Oh - this is so nice! Love this silhouette treatment and the delicate way it looks. I can see his little eye there, too. Nice catch.
