    • A common bird, sometimes a nuisance, yet able to command attention and capture the imagination on a snowy day. That’s something I love about photography. Appreciate the visit and thought niasunset.

    • Great! I thought I was alone in the wilderness with this post. I know “blackbirds” in general can be a serious nuisance where they congregate by the thousands, but I have no problem with them. Several starlings occupy a vacant martin bird house here every summer. I watch them grubbing in the lawn, feeding their young. And of course I love the winter portrait with black and white contrasts.
