This female red-winged blackbird was having a heck of a time this morning getting the hang of the new tube feeder …

She tried to land, the feeder swung away, she tried again …

She was afraid … it was new, it moved unpredictably and frightened her into taking flight again and again …

Exhausted, she gave up … she rested …

And then she tried again. You can almost see her smile …



  1. You know, you are right!! I think she IS smiling. That first shot is amazing!
