Rotflügelstärling / Red-winged Blackbird


(Agelaius phoeniceus)

Indiana, USA – April 2021

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich bereits ein Foto eines männlichen Rotflügelstärlings gepostet. Ich poste es hier auf dem neuen Pod noch einmal zusammen mit einem Foto eines weiblichen Exemplars, da beide zusammengehören und zur gleichen Zeit aufgenommen wurden.

Laut trillernd präsentiert sich das Männchen während das braun gefärbte Weibchen interessiert die Darbietung anschaut. Das bevorzugte Habitat dieser Vögel sind sumpfige Uferbereiche wo die Weibchen ihre Nester im Röhricht über Wasser bauen.

Willet be ID'd?

My best guess on what these two birds are (in a wild nature preserve on an island in SW Florida on the Gulf Coast).

On the right is the aforementioned Willet, I'm fairly sure. But the one on the left is a bit of a mystery, even after consulting the list of daily sightings nearby, the day before (at the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge). Not the exact variety on the list, but looking at Florida and Audubon guides & color plates, I'm thinking the big guy is a "semipalmated plover", the only one with this beak length and two-tone colors, and the single ring, plus orange-yellow legs.

Yes, I enjoy the challenge (and thrill) of ID'ing something I've not seen before, or photographed. And being outdoors. This was taken in an odd environment, the Bailey Tract on Sanibel Island, with some old lakes and marshes (with gators etc.) but also some shrub and dried up marsh. I had a long lens with me and truly my tired eyes saw mostly sand and tiny movement, and it wasn't until zooming in I knew I had two different birds and not until seeing it large onscreen, scratching my head and wondering what I saw. (catalog fever!).

Any alternative ID's?? (The world will still go on in any case). :)).
Happy Mother's Day (weekend) !

Rotflügelstärling / Red-winged Blackbird


(Agelaius phoeniceus)

Laut trillernd präsentiert sich dieses Männchen, um sowohl Weibchen zu beeindrucken als auch seinen territorialen Anspruch gegenüber Konkurrenten geltend zu machen.

Vogel im Schnee ...

Da hatte ich neulich diese merkwürdige Begegnung ... noch gut 20 Meter entfernt flog dieser Vogel vor mir in den Schnee und hockte sich hin. Ich so, oh, schnell mal fotografieren ... aus der Ferne ... 'klick' ... näher dran, oh - noch nicht weggeflogen ... 'klick' ... noch näher dran ... 'klick' ... und letztenendes saß ich direkt vor ihm, hielt ihm die Kamera vor die Nase und machte noch einmal 'klick', jedoch mit Sorge, kam doch von hinten ein Jogger mit seinem unangeleinten Hund angetrabt. Doch da erhob sich die Amsel und flog in die Hecke. Nichtsdestotrotz, eine merkwürdige Begegnung. Ich hoffe dem Vogel geht es noch gut. Es war noch einer dieser eisigen Tage.

Glossy Ibis: Nest-building time

Fun to watch as adult glossies make repeated trips to water's edge to pluck some prime reeds and sticks for a comfy nest (or renovations).

More birds nesting onsite @ http//www.fenichel.com/birds

I don't know what this #bird is. The best I could come up with is that it might be a #JuvenileRobin. It was sitting in a #hedge quite far away.



Here's a cropped image of it.

Usual suspects - and a mystery bird

Most of these birds are common in the swamps & marshes of SW Florid - and familiar to me. Such as those here: two greater yellowlegs (4 to be literal), an ibis, and a group of Black-necked stilts (the ones who seem to wade on toothpick stilts).

But the one closest to center here, small, black-purple-blue (or maybe 2-tone/glossy)... sharp beak, solo, not on a tree... Unusual,

I've yet to hit the field guides, though I don't remember ever seeing this. Who knows? Maybe they're common! Some type of Florida jay? Not a scrub or pinyon jay, though they look similar (say the guidebooks), and they stay inland in dry scrub, not here. Mystified.

Anyone know this bird offhand? The tail almost looks jay or mockingbird, but... It's got me! Probably common! (somewhere). But I've never seen it, or at least never photographed it. I don't think it's a common crow or blackbird I see mostly on land and trees. But... ?
