A LITTLE BIRD


Would one of you knowledgeable birders know what this little one is?  It looks very young to me.




We started the month off by going to Huntley Meadows Park in Alexandria, Virginia.  We were last there at the beginning of July.  I will have more photos of our walk later.  It was a very hot but very enjoyable walk.

Added note: I would like to thank Ginny and David who identified my little bird as a young Red-winged Blackbird.  Two wonderful blogs and you can click on their names to visit.

  1. I wish I knew what breed this bird is, Denise, but unfortunately I don't. I love the colours and markings, though!

  5. Good morning, Denise. Ginny above is quite correct. Your bird is a juvenile Red-winged Blackbird. It's a very handsome bird in my opinion, with subtle markings and an element of suaveness about it! But just think what a Jim Dandy he (if it is a he) will be when he wear his black coat with striking red epaulettes later in life! Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Hello David, thank you for confirming the id of my bird. He is lovely and now I know what he is I am veyr happy. Interestingly enough I usually see a lot of adult male and female black wings flying around this area, but none that day. Just this little one.

  6. It is definitely a young bird but you being where you are I probably wouldn't be able to identify it.

  9. It has to be juvenile, but as to what kind, that's beyond me.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.

Also, there are times when I delete by mistake, so if something you have written to me is gone, it's usually because my fingers have pushed the wrong button!
