3/18/11: Red-wings and Sparrows

I took some more video of the landfill this week.  I was trying to get some footage of an Eastern Meadowlark but he was not cooperating.  So instead I went back to the Red-winged Blackbirds which always enjoy putting on a show.  Also in the video is a Song Sparrow and a juvenile White-crowned Sparrow.  And in the background in the last clip you can hear the Southern Leopard Frogs calling.



In other news: a group of Rusty Blackbirds were seen on Wednesday, the first butterflies of the season were seen Thursday, and I saw my first Tree Swallow last night.  All in all a good week.  I hope to get some more video of the migrants when they start coming through so stay tuned.

Great video clip. It's good to see the birds in action like that, and hear the songs and sounds.

Another remarkable video from the landfill. So atmospheric. I'm waiting for the full length movie!

Great video Ryan! I really enjoy bird videos because we get to hear their calls and the male Red-winged Blackbird is one of my favorites! Is that a Savannah Sparrow at the beginning of the video?

Thanks all for the comments!

@ Larry: The bird in the beginning is a Song Sparrow.
