The picture of this immature male Red-winged Blackbird was taken at the New York Botanical Gardens. The picture of this Red-winged Blackbird was taken with the CANON EOS7D and the CANON 100-400mm lens and the CANON 580EXII flash.
Spring is on the way! This Red-winged Blackbird is one of the first migrants I have seen this year.
Thanks for posting this beautiful shot . It helped me ID the three in may yard today. March 9, 2013, Sharbot Lake Ontario.
