Red-winged Blackbird

The Red-winged Blackbird, Agelaius phoeniceus, is a common bird, most often associated with marshy areas perched on cattails.  They appear once in a while in large flocks with other blackbirds and starlings.  The middle image above is the female and the bottom image is a first year male.  I don't have a decent image of a mature male, yet.
