1st Red-winged Blackbird

Perfect. The first day of March and a Red-winged Blackbird visited my feeders and suet cage. Since I keep records, I checked to see last year (2012) the first male showed up on Feb 26, and in 2010, it was March 13. So, all in all, right on time. Spring is at the doorstep.

  1. I saw the first RWB here in Virginia last year on March 7. We had a pair nest in a tangle of vines and cattails. Hope they come back again this year.

  2. Hi Christine, yes thank goodness, spring is almost here, I’m glad to say there are signs here in the UK too, We are finally emerging from the long dark tunnel of winter! Best wishes, James 🙂
