One of the most abundant and most studied North American birds, the Red-winged Blackbird is found in wetlands and coniferous forests across the continent. The black male, with its brilliant red shoulders, looks strikingly different than the brown-and-gold-streaked female, which could be mistaken for a large, dark sparrow. Females weave intricate mud-lined nests anchored to standing cattails and willows near marshes.
