This vocal songbird is notable for the male’s bright red epaulettes and distinctive song. Found liberally throughout the US in marshy and agricultural areas, the flashy males are polygamous and may have many females with nests throughout their territory. But, not all the chicks from these females are his – many are by males from adjacent territories! Get the red-winged blackbird ringtone for your cellphone.
