Another common bird that I have begun to see for the first time this year are redwinged blackbirds. The first one that I got a pic of this year was at the visitors center of the Minnesota Valley NWR on March 24th.
This was one of a small flock that was hanging around the feeding station.
Later in the week, March 27th, I visited Wood Lake Nature Center and there were quite a few staking out their territories.
Most of the water at Wood Lake is still frozen, even so it looks like the spring migration has begun there also.
