RED WINGED BLACKBIRDS ARE BACK IN ESOPUS!!!
As cold as it is today... (It seems like 20 with the wind chill).. The Red Winged Blackbirds are back down along our stream that traverses The Mount from the southern ponds just at the top of Esopus town to the apple orchard of the Apple Bin Family, the Red Winged Blackbirds are back. As I said yesterday I can "hear" them, but, even with my 60 power scope I cannot see even one. But, as the Irish say about the fairies, They're there!!! The pitch on this one below (49 sec clip) is a bit higher than the Red Winged we get here. It just goes to show that there are regionalisms even among birds.
