Red-Winged Blackbird

Red-Winged Blackbird

 

The male Red-Winged Blackbird has vivid red shoulders that it can actually hide if it wants. The female Red-Winged Blackbird doesn't resemble the name at all since she has brown and white striping on her entire body.

 

Even though one Red-Winged Blackbird may have more than a dozen females in its territory, not all of the eggs in those nests belong to the Territorial male. Nearby Red-Winged Blackbird males may be responsible for many of the eggs!
