On The Fly.......



As close as I could get to this Red-Winged Blackbird down at the beach.
Are they fast!

  1. Tonight on BBC TV there will be a programme entitled " Coast", and according to the info……" Nick Crane visits Nova Scotia to learn about early British Settlers". I am so looking forward to seeing some of your beautiful land. There are so many ways to watch TV other than on a TV set, it would not surprise me if you could get it somehow! ( catch up TV) Lovely greens in your photo BTW.

    1. Thanks Frances for the 'heads up', I looked and found a short introduction on-line at the BBC. .....talking about our (Nova Scotians) Scottish ancestry......to which I am closely linked. Maybe I can see the whole program in the near future!

  2. Such a lovely, painterly scene. I love those Red-winged Blackbirds and they certainly are hard to capture!

    1. There are so many shades of green in this area, Pat, that it's difficult to capture them at times.
      One of these days I am going to capture/photograph this bird just sitting on a bullrush/cattail where they seem to congregate at the beach.

  3. Wow Jim, I'd call this photo a miracle on two legs, whoah incredible that you got its speed...btw if you feel like visiting me I can't post photos anymore on blogs too many,they cut me off but hey took it on Google so I erased everything. I still have a blog without photos where I merely talk or joke, if you care to visit I'll be at :

  4. The RedWings have left this part of the world. I miss them. It's a workout trying to catch them, even for a second. Love the movement in this photo!

    1. Hi Carol. Thanks. These birds are always flying it seems, one of these days I hope to 'catch' one sitting!!

    1. It could be a painting I guess, Terry. I would be more successful using one of those iphone apps on it!!

  6. They are very fast, Jim! I've learned that the hard way. I love these birds, and I sure miss them when they go away in the winter. Gets awfully quiet around here without all these feathery friends.
