My first Red-winged Blackbirds - Male & Young Male (2)


Hi PhotoFriends,

It surely has been a very long cold, icy, snowy winter!

It even snowed today

But I decided to tough it out and turn up the heat inside, put on my parka and open the door and take some pictures of my song birds.

I ended up photographing a first for me! The Red-winged Black Birds. So guess freezing inside the house wasn't so bad

But as you can see, the weather being dark and crappy and the snow coming down didn't make me happy!
But such is life as we all know as photographers. One day soon, I bet the sun will be shining so brightly!

Pix 2: The Young Male







Thank you so very much for dropping by and saying hello!
It means so much to me.

Hope you enjoy my two photos!

Have a great day!
Cheers,
BeeBalm

I like these BB, I think the weather adds a wonderful dimension to them. Kudos to you for shooting and coming out with quality shots on such a day.

Hi BB, congrats on your first RWBB's. I just started seeing one yesterday on my feeder, first of the year. I like the mood the snowflakes add. I only dislike snow in the shots when it starts to hinder AF because it's too heavy or prominent between the subject and the lens. The snow adds to these shots I think.

I use the appearance of these birds as the opening of a new photo season around here and the conditions look similar. I like the mood. Not 100% positive but I think you may have two males here with the second one being a first year male.

Two really nice image BeeBalm! Shooting from inside the house is great if you have subjects. I've been lucky to see magpies lately (and they are wary).

A nice job on both of these BB. I agree that the snow does add to the shots ~ Ron

I think your female might be a 1st year male BeeBalm?

This is always a good sign of Spring when these birds start showing up However the snow tells another story

Great start on on your RWBB images, hope they continue to come your way!

Very nice, I have always overlooked shooting these
birds thinking they would always be plentiful, now that things have
slowed down in my area and can't even find any to shoot

Very nice images; the deep black of the males make it tricky for exposure. Where I reside, I usually don't spot and hear any until March.
