Lovely to Look At!

I think this female red-wing blackbird is so lovely to look at. She is a beauty! Reminds me of a song, 'Lovely to look at', that was #1 on the Hit Parade in 1935. No, I wasn't there! It was before my time, really it was! I wasn't born till the next year. :) But I guess I am a child of that generation because I love the music from back then, just like I love the birds.

When I was a youngster, our family often went to the movies on Saturday, when we made a trip to town. My father loved music and was even in the town band in his younger days in Clyde, Alberta, Canada. Because of that, we saw most of the musicals that came out, and there were a lot of them back then. As a result, I have a real love for music too, and I learned a lot of the old-time favorite. So sometimes when I shoot a picture one of those songs might come to mind, which I hope you don't mind. :) Anyway, here is the link to the 1935 recording of "Lovely To Look At." -

I plead ignorance. I’ve seen this bird before and did not realize it was a Redwing blackbird. It’s neither black nor red. Oh well, not all things are what they might seem on the surface. Beautiful bird. Beautiful shot. You caught great lighting!
