The Little Story

Innocently walking along the boardwalk into the marsh...wham! You’re being dive-bombed by a bird. More than likely it is a red-winged blackbird protecting its nest. These guys are extremely territorial and have little patience for intruders. They’re frequent visitors to my bird feeders where they are somewhat more gracious. 


Did you know red-winged blackbirds are polygynous? That means the males have many female mates. According to, up to 15 in some cases! No wonder he looks like he’s wearing a soldier’s uniform— he’s busy guarding all those nests. I didn’t know that.
