We went fishing again at Lake Emily

We didn't catch one, not even a bite....But I did happen to catch a great shot of this Red Winged Blackbird. He was singing his song that distict call they make, which is really kind of cool. I will have to go back to this lake with only my camera, as on our way out I saw several other bird species I would have like to stay and photograph. To listen to his call, click on the picture below and it will take you to the bird call website I like to go where you can click on an audio link to hear his song.


  1. Nice detailed shot of the guy with the red epaulets. Those redwings really get worked up over proclaiming their territory. I always thought it sounded like they were screaming,"It's Spring!" Fun website. Go back with your camera! More photos! As for fishing; who needs to catch fish when everything is so peaceful and pretty?

  2. I just listened again to the audio of his call.
    You are right! I does sound like he is screaming "It's Sprimg" how cool is that. Thanks

  3. I'm in agreement with you both, it does sound like "It's spring".

    great shot!
