Red-winged Blackbird - Agelaius phoeniceus (Icteridae) 110p-3275

One of the most familiar birds in North America, the Red-winged Blackbird ranges over most of the continent, from Alaska to Guatemala. But there are also isolated populations farther south in Central America, such as the one in northern Costa Rica near the border with Nicaragua. This male was perched atop a tall weed in an overgrazed pasture near a large wetland.
