First Time I've Had A Female Red-winged Blackbird In My Yard
I do not have any body of water near my neighborhood, no lake, creek, pond or even small area of standing water in a ditch. So I almost never see aquatic birds in my yard. Red-winged blackbirds nest and feed near water. I was very surprised when this female showed up at my feeders and hung around for about a week before disappearing again.
