CANON 100-500RF @ 500mm
f7.1 @ 1/800
ISO 1250

The male Red-winged Blackbird, looks his best when calling, as that corresponds with a wing position displaying the colourful shoulder feathers.( I cropped the image fairly tightly, since the background was average at best, and eliminated much of the dead space around the subject). Usually one of the early arrivals for our Spring season.

Excellent capture of the calling action and wing pose, Paul. This certainly does show off the brilliant colours!

Brilliant pose Paul. Love the details and the singer is certainly giving a full display to show those colours.

this one is singing his heart out for a mate and territory and you caught it in the wright moment, the added shoulder pads is a bonus PAUL.
