I had read on another site that any gathering of blackbirds is attended by many types. In this swarm there were a fair number of Red-winged Blackbirds. What I didn't realize was that the immatures resemble the female, and gradually moult to move into their male plumage. So all I know is this is a photo of an immature Red-winged Blackbird, gender unknown.
Now it gets easier as the immature has developed an orange patch on his wing.
In this photo he's well on his way to a fully developed epalette, but his wings still have the stripes of immaturity.
The epalette on this one is not so developed. Nature never fails to amaze me.
|Leucistic Purple Finch.|
This is a female Grackle. If you look closely, her leg is deformed. She is able to perch on a branch, and move about. She is accepted by her flock, as is the Leucistic Purple Finch accepted by hers.
