Dan Tallman’s Chook Weblog: Crimson-winged Blackbird

Erika and I encountered a number of feminine Crimson-winged Blackbirds on the Billy Frank Jr Nisqually Nationwide Wildlife Refuge on 18 October 2021. These blackbirds are some of the frequent North American birds, so we have been stunned that we had not listed the species since 3 August. Their absence is a thriller. Though migratory elsewhere, this chicken must be current in our space all yr. Crimson-winged Blackbirds owe their abundance to their nesting in massive freshwater and saltwater marshes and prairies in addition to close to lakes, ponds and roadside ditches (Yasukawa and Searcy 2020). Crimson-winged Blackbirds even breed in city and suburban habitats and in fallow fields. Most Interstate freeway edges present excellent habitat and facilitate the species’ unfold. 

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
