Blackbirds of Green Cay
The birds of Green Cay are so varied and beautiful but often we walk right past the common ones. I took a moment this past week to slow down and enjoy the blackbirds. They are all a ruckus right now with breeding season upon us. The grackles and Red-winged Blackbirds are chattering up a storm and those male blackbirds are defending the railing like it's for their life. Next time you're at your favorite birding spot, slow down and enjoy the common birds. For those of us in South Florida, it will be all we have around us in just a few short months.
