Anyway, red-winged blackbirds are not at all common for me, so I was happy to catch a few good shots.
I don't speak blackbirdese, so I couldn't tell off-hand that his tweets were immature.
Finally, there's a little pavilion by the pond, where there must have been at least half a dozen barn swallows nesting. After waiting for several minutes, a few of them began returning to their nesting area.
They're actually pretty colorful birds. Unfortunately, this shot doesn't show off the blue upper back.
