Red-winged Blackbird

The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center had a little trail through some natural habitat and a platform blind for viewing this pond (where we saw a pair of Wood Storks and got our one and only good look at a Roseate Spoonbill). This guy was perched in the top of the mangroves right next to the platform.

 

Background gently Gaussian-blurred in Photoshop. This lens (Sony DSC-H9) has a really hideous hard-edged bokeh (or at least it did at this zoom and aperture).
