While passing through the historic town of Gettysburg yesterday my wife and I took a moment to drive through the grounds where the first day's fighting took place.
This Red-winged Blackbird perched upon the likeness of Brevet Major General James Samuel Wadsworth caught my eye. His perch is not a natural one but from the condition of the statute it does appear that it is used often.
I can't say I'm surprised by the Red winged being a little blasphemous w/ this statue - lol! Cute shot!
It does look like he is not the first one to sit here. Yikes!
That is just a cool shot! Do you realize that there are a lot of red-headed woodpeckers there at Gettysburg? If you ever want to photograph them, let me know and I can give you directions. It is so nice to see them flitting about from tree to tree and they are quite easy to photograph.
I would say it's used often! Good shot.
He looks the way I feel many times.
I noticed the new header also, is that from the farm or did you make a trip someplace for the whitetails.
So now the statue chap has a true feather in his cap...too cute~
Thanks everyone for your nice comments. Brad, the header shot is taken near home. I havn't taken time for a big-game trip lately.
Bird Girl, thanks for the offer I'll keep it in mind the next time I plan to be in that area.
Looks like the spots that the Bluebirds in my yard pick.
Is it a resident bird or migrant bird? It's very nice!
