Wow, I love this, it works so well with that little touch of colour - one of my favourites of your illustrations. We don't have these birds in England, only the plain blackbirds.

Hey, thanks a bunch for stopping by and sharing your insights. I do love the dry, almost metallic call of the red-winged blackbird. And they're so striking in appearance!
