Desperate Housewife


It’s not a character from the reality TV show. It’s not even a housewife. Rather, “nestwife”.

It took me a while to identify this bird on these pictures.

This is a female Red-Winged Blackbird. We have plenty photos of these gorgeous birds but mostly males with their red epaulets.

Like many other cases in the birds’ world, female red-winged blackbird looks not even close to their male mates. They are subdued, streaky brown, almost like a large, dark sparrow.

To some extend, this is a debut of this bird at Chidlovski Blog Chidlovski.

Welcome aboard, Ms. Red-Winged Blackbird!
