These birds with a very distinctive call live all year around in Vancouver close to mashes, wetlands, the lakes and ponds. The size and intensity of red in their patch is directly related to how successful the male is in attrracting a female (quoting my birdbook). The female of the species is not black but heavily striped brown with a marked buff streak over the eye.

Der wird mit seinem wenigen Rot dann wohl noch nicht so erfolgreich bei den Damen sein aber vielleicht kommt das ja noch!
Liebe Grüße, Ernst

Hmmm, is THIS bird successful with women?:)
Great shot. Rgds, Viola

he's beautiful and he knows it – just note the self-assertion spreading over his beaky little face while posing for you – an expert model! and he's even giving you his most famous bedroom eyes ; )). what a great shot, adele! an eye-opener for me, as i have never seen this kind of blackbird before! hugs, sabine.

Canan Oner, 16.04.2011 at 10:29h

Oh I thought black birds were all in black with an orange beak...This is different and handsome with his mischievous look :-))
Nice capture Adele....

Jens Hansen, 16.04.2011 at 10:59h

Wonderful capture..very nice work indeed Adele :-)

Arnica, 17.04.2011 at 19:15h

Na dieser scheint erfolgreich zu sein mit seiner Werbung um ein Weibchen so schön rot wie seine Federn leuchten. Er hat auch schon den richtigen Machoblick drauf ;-))

LG Arnica
