Springbrook -- part 2

There were a few other birds than geese at Springbrook yesterday morning. A colorful Robin . . .

. . . a flock of Rock Pigeons . . .

. . . and of course the male Red-winged Blackbirds claiming their territory and waiting of the females.

I did not know that they eat cat tail seeds.

There is very little open water at Springbrook.

A few Mallards have claimed what little bit they could find.

Note the ice to the right of the male.
