"The distinctive crest can be raised and pointed when agitated or lowered and barely visible while resting.
~All About Birds - Cornell University.

My gal pal here was pretty agitated. Every time she would start eating the seeds on the ground, a red-winged blackbird would chase her away. After several attempts, she turned the tables and went after Sir RWBB, She raised her crest and put quite a scowl on her face and that blackbird definitely got the message...

...Don't mess with a woman having a bad hair day!


  1. Lol, that's exactly what she's thinking. Don't take my picture, you can see I haven't styled my hair yet!

    Funny how the male is so flamboyant compared with the very subdued female...

  2. She's fierce! I love to watch birds, always entertaining.

  3. When I lived in the D.C. area, cardinals were abundant and I loved their song. They aren't found here in the Pacific Northwest.

  4. Hey dear, go easy on that lipstick.

  5. I think she may have been going for Julia Roberts, but ended up with a bit more of an Angelina Jolie thing... Such great shots, and commentary. Thanks!!
