With the snowy backyard below him, a redwinged blackbird visits the bird feeder on a winter’s day. Overall black with buff or orange edges to his feathers, this yearling red-wing has copper on the shoulder, not yet showing his future red marking. The bill is conical and pointed.
Location: southeastern Connecticut (USA).
