Red-winged Blackbird Female (Red-winged)

Red wing blackbird female —picture

I saw red wings today,

Hanging onto rushes wind-swayed….

These were females

Or young ones–couldn’t tell,–

Waiting for the guys to display?

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

      I think I saw a couple perched on some pond weeds yesterday. Body shape was familiar, but all black. Didn’t see any wing bands. BUT was driving by and didn’t get to look from another angle!
