Mar 7 2014 Birding in Delta and Richmond/Overcast
Hornby and 104th Delta British Columbia. Canada
|A Leucistic Red-winged Blackbird (foreground) feeds in a backyard at Hornby and 104th St, Delta. I had just told my birding companion I had never found anything unusual and two minutes later this guy!|

Riverport and Steveston in Richmond.

I was drawn into this composition by the fragility of the buds, the matching colour of the bird and building in the background. Then it began to sing.
