Bird Watching

May 11th, 2008 Posted in Uncategorized

Update: Deborah has totally correctly identified the bird as a red-winged blackbird.

I went to a friend’s house warming party in New Paltz and there was this great pond across the street where I saw the bird in the second shot, which I couldn’t identify, and this one, which is a heron, but the only reason I know that is because someone walked by and told me it was a heron. He stood so still that at first I thought he wasn’t real. I thought he was a statue that someone placed in the pond. (Really. I thought that.)

The second bird was black with an orange spot. Does anyone know what kind of bird he is?

    Looks like a red-winged blackbird, frequent denizen of wet areas.

    That is definitely a red winged black bird. 🙂

    Thank you! It was a pretty, and noisy, bird.
