Red-winged Blackbird

This morning, while walking across our snowy field, we heard a Red-winged Blackbird singing. With our 2 feet of snow on the ground, and frozen lake, it seems too early for him to be back. The dilemna for male birds returning to set up territories is — if you return earlier than your compeitors you may get the best territory, but bad weather may make survival questionable.
Hope he finds our bird feeders when the snow and icy weather arrive tomorrow.

You have some beautiful bird pics here, and what a variety. Quite jealous, hummingbirds i wish.
