Red-Winged Blackbird, June 3, 2015

Wild Bird Wednesday, Water World Wednesday, and Wednesday Waters

Wild Bird Wednesday
Red-winged Blackbird, Agelaius phoeniceus, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA, May 31, 2015

The male Red-Winged Blackbird is identified by his reddish wing patches.  The female and the young birds are a heavily streaked brownish color.

They can be found all across the United States and much of Canada.  They prefer marshes but will nest near any body of water.  Two or three broods are raised each year.

Water World Wednesday
Canada Goose, Tupelo, Mississippi, USA

I wonder if animals notice their reflections in the water.

Wednesday Waters
Tugboat with barges on the Tennessee River at Shiloh, Tennessee, USA, June 1, 2015

Lettering on the stern of the tugboat identifies it as being from Paducah, Kentucky.  Paducah is where the Tennessee River flows into the Ohio River, and is 161 miles (259km) to the north.

Hope you are having a beautiful day!
