Tonight while driving home from work I saw a couple of red-winged blackbirds (Agelaius phoeniceus) flitting around on the side of the road.
They remind me of the great outdoors and wide open spaces.
I am also reminded of a visit that I made to the Toronto Zoo where I was able to catch an nice picture of a red-winged blackbird.
It is rare that I have a chance to capture a picture of one as I normally only see them while driving.
Evidently I must have been near the bird’s nest. The bird flew into my head from behind.

Of course, I also think of this Blackbird when ever I see a red-winged blackbird. I took this picture the day I met some of my best friends.
