Bird in the window
I’m not sure why I haven’t shared these before; maybe it’s because I took them with my phone rather than my regular camera. This red-winged blackbird showed up in the window of my in-laws’ cottage at Clearlake, back in May. We tried to figure out what he was up to — puffing himself up and preening for several minutes, then flying away to another tree, before returning to the window for more preening. He put on quite a show for most of the afternoon!
