I swear I saw this bird on my way into work this morning. Problem is, I couldn’t snap a photo because I do live in podunk so most of my commute is in a 55 mph zone… The other problem is, Wiki says the red-breasted blackbird would have had to wander VERY far from home to be here.
I can’t find anything that should be local that looks right. His chest might have been a touch more orange than that, but not much at all. It wasn’t a true orange, by any means. Any other suggestions for something most likely to be in Central Virginia?
There’s also a great contest out there. If you don’t already follow Eternal Arts & Crafts, you’re missing out. She is quite crafty, shares great recipes, and I look forward to her reviews of knitting periodicals and the patterns within. I count on her to keep me from mindlessly adding stuff I’ll never really knit to my queue, just because the photo shoot looks neat. Don’t forget to say I sent you!
