Do redwing blackbirds call it a tree break?

... Since they don't drink coffee?

Redwing blackbirds at Centennial Beach duckpond sit for a few minutes in the willows.

They've been working hard all day on their nesting site in the reeds. (She hauls building supplies; he sings. Division of labour.)

Another female, in the same tree.

Maybe this is her mate, keeping a lookout on the other side of the pond.

I just realized; it's 6 years ago today that I decided to start a blog. That was over on Delphi; I moved here 6 months later. It doesn't seem that long.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
