female redwing blackbird

Quick shoutout to all them ladybirds

Generally when discussing Red-winged Blackbirds, it’s always about the dudes. Generally because they’re the black ones with the red wings. I get it. Still, while not nearly as black, the females do at least have some small patches of red as well, so let’s not leave them out.

This is one of my efforts to not leave them out. This lady was hopping about the park all day grabbing twigs, string, and other assorted debris to build herself a nest.

I got this with my 150-600mm lens shooting at 1/500 and f6.3, with an ISO of 100.
