...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


red-winged blackbird

I love the call of the red-winged blackbird.

I never knew what their eggs looked like until I got this book, Egg & Nest
by Rosamund Purcell, Linnea Hall and Rene Corado:

Red-winged blackbird eggs are absolutely spectacular!  

I wonder if Jackson Pollock or Franz Kline 
got their inspiration from red-winged blackbird eggs?

You can learn more about red-winged blackbirds 
at Cornell's All About Birds website.  
They have lots of information, sound clips, and videos.

(Sometimes when I want to hear the sounds of spring and summer, 
I go on their site and listen to sound clips...)
