Red-Winged Blackbirds on the Way

Out in the kayak, buffeted by winds, I was creating quite a stir among the blackbirds.  Their nests are just above the water, woven into the reeds.  I couldn’t actually see into any of them because I didn’t want to get too close, but with the camera at arms length I got this one shot.  Eggs!  Looks like lots of little birds, coming soon.  The nest construction is fascinating too.  Maybe in a few weeks I can risk a better look.
