Thanksgiving Dinner at my feeders

Robin Rowland 

So I had some interesting visitors at my bird feeders for Thanksgiving Dinner today.


I think this is a gorgeous male red winged blackbird.

571-BB_DSC00335.jpgThe BC redwinged blackbird is is somewhat different from the birds I photographed in Ontario, that at first I didn’t recognize it.  This bird has a yellow tuft and the red isn’t as prominent, so that is why I am not certain (Comments please if I need a correction)

And there were visitors who were also my guests for an earlier dinner.
