Default redwing showoff

this RWBB was in full display mode this afternoon at my "bird park"... he was probably about 15 feet away, putting on a show, knowing i couldn't resist... 7D, 400mm, 1/250 @ f/8...

I love when they do this. That red-orange is just so brilliant against the black. How can the female resist?! Terrific, irresistible series I would have loved to catch. Well done!

Yep, if I was a female RWBB, I'd be all over that guy. Nice capture. They can be so flighty. Plucky too. I got a pic several years ago of one going after a Sandhill Crane!

Rocky, nice shots! These Blackbirds during mating season seem very hyper and never stay still and difficult to get off a shot.
