This is about the time of year when I start to see Red-winged Blackbirds. It will likely be another few weeks before I see one at my feeder. Then about 2 weeks after the males, the females arrive.
We had these two this morning at Humber Bay.
Why, what’s the matter,
That you have such a February face,
So full of frost, of storm and cloudiness? – William Shakespeare, “Much Ado About Nothing”
