I thought this was a redwinged blackbird but, it just doesn't really appear to be one. If it is then, it is way out of it's usual habitat. shot in Massachuesetts. thanx in advance.

Looks like one to me, just that the red isn't quite as apparent on this one. I believe that there is one other kind that is similar to the red and this may be it but can't recall the name; apparently differences are very subtle and in the amount of red in the wing color. My guess, though, would be that this is a RWBB.

According to the authoratative: "Boids, you want stinken boids?"

This is a "First Year" Red Winged Black Bird and it's range extents to all of Massachusett's....

Norm and Dave, thanx!!! i thought it was a young RWBB but the reason i questioned it is that it was in an area where there is no marsh or swamps or water. that's the first i've ever seen in a thickly settled neighborhood. thanx again!!!
