Sure Sign of Spring

Another sure sign that spring has arrived here on the Green lake in Northern WI with the sound of the red-winged blackbird. The song of the red-winged blackbird for me is a sure sign that the long winter is over and Spring is finally here. The excerpt below is from the book: Birds of Minnesota and Wisconsin By: Janssen *Tessen* Kennedy

“The sound of the season’s first Red-winged Blackbird  may be the remedy for a birder’s winter blahs. The males get an early start on the season,
arriving in our marshes and wetlands a week or so before the females,  often in early to mid-March.  In the females’ absence,  the males stake out territories through song and visual displays. 

The male’s bright red shoulders and  short, raspy song are his most important tools  in the often intricate strategy he employs to defend his territory from rivals.  A flashy and richly voiced male  who has managed to establish a large and productive territory can attract several mates to his cattail kingdom.”
