Red-winged Blackbird

    The marshes and wetlands of Waterloo County are filled with the sight and sound of Red-winged Blackbirds, surely one of the most wonderful aspects of spring in Ontario. This handsome male was displaying and posturing in an attempt to secure as many mates as possible. Up until the time we left no female had shown the slightest interest!
