Red-winged Blackbirds at Green Cay

It's summertime and Green Cay is full of new arrivals. This week we had our first Black-bellied Whistling Duck babies and we've had scores of Mottled Ducks this summer. The Common Moorhens and Purple Gallinules have little black puff balls abounding but one of my favorite nesting birds are the Red-winged Blackbirds. Check out the series below to see them in action!

I may not fit in the nest but I'm still hungry.
