The female Red-winged Blackbird
TIP: After looking seeing it with our eyes, always look among the Starlings or even Grackles and Cowbirds. They tend to blend in with the other birds around.
TIP: Look at their chests, they resemble an sparrow or thrasher with that pattern
TIP: Look at their beaks, Long and black. Along with looking at their crown pattern there's a hint of a reddish/goldish brown color.
TIP: They do have a slight hint of red on their shoulders like the males.
We have not seen the blackbirds in the past couple weeks, this typically happens once the female starts to show and they are off to a nearby location.
