A Male Red-Winged Blackbrid

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.
