“Konkaree”

The red winged blackbirds are back! Last Friday 20th March I heard my first “konkaree” of the season. Looking up at the top of a tall tree, I saw the bird sitting there, issuing its characteristic song.

I note that I recorded a first sighting of the bird in the blog on 5th April 2013. Unfortunately, I did not record its arrival last year.
