Red-winged Blackbird

The last couple of days have been rain and more rain.  Thankfully the snow predicted for last night did not materialize to any great extent.  The ground was far too warm for any sticking.  Ice did coat surfaces but melted away quickly.
I have noticed over the last several days that large flocks of birds are coming through.  Not sure what is going on.  For the last three afternoons, a large group of Red-winged Blackbirds comes in and roost overnight in the woods behind the house.  They are quite a noisy bunch.

A couple will always come to the feeders and hunt around on the ground for seeds.  This is probably an adult male in his winter coloration.

Not sure what is going on with blogger the last couple of weeks.  I can't upload photos using IE and when I do a post in Google Chrome, the alignment doesn't hold so I have to go back to IE to fix.  I hope they get it fixed soon as it is becoming frustrating to do much of anything on posting.
