Paint yellow... paint black... paint red.

One of my favorite songbirds is the red-winged blackbird. There's a flock that's been nesting behind and below the house by a patch of tall scrub oaks close to a shallow pond. I threw leftover cornbread to them this morning.
A tip for their songs. :)
I read that sometimes redwings attack red things near their territory.
They will fly at and sometimes even bonk people wearing red hats or shirts
if they enter a redwing's territory.
