The early bird gets the territory
A male red-winged blackbird belts out his territorial song from a perch on a cattail in a marsh near an abandoned timber mill in Dixonville, Ore., on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013. In the early spring, male red-winged blackbirds defend a territory and wait for the arrival of their female counterparts.
