Red-Winged Blackbird

(Erie, MI) I rarely encounter red-winged blackbirds in the city, but they seem to be quite common when I am driving in a more rural setting. Otherwise known as Agelaius phoeniceus, these birds are more fond of marshy areas and open prairie than they are of congested urban environments.

I think that I have been seeing more of these birds of late due to their migratory nature, as red-winged blackbirds are not fans of cold Midwestern winters.
