It's still winter, right?

In New England, we expect January and February to be deep winter. Soft fluffy snow covering the countryside and jamming up the city. Here's a shot from earlier this week, when I headed out to Concord, MA. When I got there, I decided to picture the flooding on the Concord River, and soon a noise interrupted my concentration. It was the brash song of a Red-winged blackbird. Red-wings are one of the first harbingers of spring, a sure sign that we've survived another winter. Since the river wasn't interesting, I decided to go to the nearby Great Meadows NWR and see if I could get some Red-wing pix. Here he is!

Shot: 104. Kept: 16.
