A Pretty Evening

It’s been cold and windy again for day after day.  Sometimes we get an hour or two of pretty weather and one day we had a lovely evening.

And this morning there was a soft, grey mist.

It is rare to see the yellowheaded blackbirds at Ginty Creek.  I have observed them once before.  They are a bird of the open marshlands.  This immature redwing blackbird was not feeling very sure of himself.
