Our blackbirds here are large, over 7" long so maybe that is why they look different.


These are a good bit larger than a cardinal, if that tells you anything. They are here as a flock and move between the trees and the ground in a wave.

The red wing blackbirds we have in our area don't have females that look anything like this so yours must be different than the ones we have.


I don't know from any personal experience, I just looked it up and thought it would be the female or juvenile of the rusty black bird, but it's not and it was one of the ones the site sent me to for similar birds. Then I realized I had red winged and rusty black birds in my yard. If anyone knows more than I do I welcome there opinion. I went to the Cornell site. Link

Thanks for the ID. I gazed at the bird, trying to ID it before reading your caption. "What IS that?", I said. We shall be expecting our RWBBs in the next few weeks; males arrive before females, as I read.
Wonderful sharpness; great zoom/crop.
