Red-winged Blackbird (Agelaius phoeniceus)
Length: about 7".
Photographed on May 25, 2005, along the refuge's Wildlife Loop (map).

Abundant all year on Assateague Island, the red-winged blackbird feeds on seeds and insects.

These birds are quite territorial and during the May-June breeding season, you might receive warning calls from a male and be "tailed" if you are close to a bird's nesting area. When danger is present, the male may cover his red and yellow epaulets.
