I did clean my camera lens after I saw the spots on this photo. Sorry!
Red-Winged Blackbird (female)
(First of Year)
surrounded by diamonds
on her nesting box of choice
at its post at the very tip top of a Maple tree
See that flying sawdust?
Actually, most times it would grab a mouthful and fly to a nearby pine tree, where it would toss the debris.
Both sets of bluets above were in the same place. 90% of them were washed out and more white than blue, but this one little bunch was very blue and a bee fly was visiting them when I took this photo.
I also saw a Palm Warbler, a Yellow-Rumped Warbler, Tufted Titmouse, several Black-Capped Chickadees, and two Spring Azures, none of which cooperated for photos! Canada geese were in the channel area, but I didn't bother to photograph them!
