Here is the fourth "guessing game" series for the creatures I saw during Sunday's hike in Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. This one should be easy for you, because this guy likes to be noticed!
If you walk near a marsh at all
You're likely to detect my call
Melodious yet kind of harsh
It carries well across the marsh
I often cling high to a reed
Trying to call a mate to breed
My feathers are the blackest jet
All over chest and back, but yet
There are two colors in my name
And one of them is like a flame
For, as if to make me bolder,
A fiery patch adorns my shoulder
My mate however is quite drab
As I her love attempt to nab
And though you notice as I sing
What caught your eye's my flashy wing
So tell me now, what's the good word?
Did you just guess red-winged blackbird?
