The Red-wing Blackbirds in our area have trained their young families well. Everyday we have a little flock arriving for snacks at the bird feeders. The adult males always announce their arrival when they land in our yard, while the females slip in quieter ... and more shyly.
We sighted a pair of young ones resting in the mountain ash as we were sipping our morning coffee earlier today. As soon as I caught them on camera, they flew off. Just like babies, they know when to pose!
It's a beautiful summery day here in northerly Alberta. The morning calmness has worn off as lawn mowers roar off in the distance and my vacuum cleaner has a small workout closer to home.
Soon it will be time to sip something cool on my lounge chair in the garden with a stack of books.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Linking with Friday Skywatch
