I'd been hearing a red-winged blackbird but only caught a split-second glimpse of him a few weeks ago. Today, he heard madame hazel had the camera out, so he came to ham it up for his 15 minutes of fame.

The surprise was not so much that he showed himself, but that he spent so much time hanging out in the hemlocks!!! None of us had ever seen a red-winged blackbird in a large evergreen before.
