It’s that time of year and the birds are pairing up as they do each Spring. It is fun to watch the pairs of ducks and birds of prey interact as they go through their respective courtship rituals. I stalled out near the start of the auto tour loop at Ridgefield this morning as I watched this male Red-winged Blackbird go through a series of dispay postures for the female nearby. Frankly, she looked pretty non-plussed. I had never seen a Red-winged Blackbird perform like this before and watched through binocs as well as the camera lens.
