Egg Number 4??? That's Great Honey!! by 


Nikon D300 ~ 18-200mm Nikkor lens
f 5.6 ~ 1/1250s ~ ISO 640
Taken at Mclane Creek near Olympia, Washington (US)
Red Winged Blackbird ~ Agelaius phoeniceus

The birds are all busy collecting nesting material now at Mclane Creek. I watched this fellow pull some of the fluff out of the old cattail and tuck it into his claws. He seemed a bit wild eyed, so I think his sweety was telling him to hurry it up!!

    A lovely shot of this boisterous fellow!

  • Thanks Kat! I’ve never had the chance to just watch them like this, and they are so active right now. It was so interesting to see him pluck the fluff out of the cattail and tuck it in his little claw. He didn’t even seem to mind that I was that close to him.
